Flying Unicorn March OTP Project...

Hi there everyone :)))

Back with you to share this months OTP project which is available with the Main Kit at Flying Unicorn

 Each month the main kit comes with an OTP item.  I have never been a huge OTP fan...I find them fiddly and then there is always...what to do with!! But I am actually enjoying doing something different lately and the great thing about the OTP item in the kit is we get to create whatever we like and with whatever products we like (if we want to).

My boys are always collecting things...typical boys, they have loads of special treasures they when I saw what this months OTP item was I decided to create them a little treasure box.

In the mixed media add on was some Martha Stewart Crackle I first of all covered this little box with Gesso and then crackle paint.  I have used a combination of Shimmerz Vibez Blue Jeans, Lindy's Stamp Gang Moon Shadow Mist in Buccaneer Bay Blue (which was also included in the add on).

Searched high and low for all my cog and gear chipboard (lol!!).  Combination of 2Crafty, Dusty Attic and A2Z Scraplets....layered them all up and used Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam in Blue Suede Shoes, Silks Acrylic Glaze in African Jade, Stargazer and Solar Gold.

Final touches were some stamping, more Tattered Angles Glimmer Glaze in Indian Summer, Prima flowers and metal embellishments.

Wishing you all a fun filled and happy weekend...
Be back next week with more projects :)))
Thank so much for all your kind messages...

Flying Unicorn March KOM - Part 3

Hi everyone :))

Where is March going?? Can't believe we are over half way through March and I have still more to share with you all using the Flying Unicorn March KOM and add ons.  There are still some left in store so if you are after a great kit full of yummy products and great value for money...head on over.

For the layout below I was inspired by an online class I took of Georgia Heald called Pop and Colours #2.  Georgia has some crazy talent and I loved watching her process.  So the background of this layout is inspired be her...thanks Georgia and thanks for sharing your tips :))

"Catching Bubbles" 

Went with a circle theme here... the kit came with a circle Prima mask and a circle stamp from Bo Bunny...
The gorgeous Aqua blue mist here is from 13 Arts which was also included in the Mixed Media Add On.  I have used a combination of the mist and gelatos on my layout.

Got to keep going...have loads to do and deadlines approaching!!
Thanks so much for popping in :))

Guest Designer at Off the Rails Scrapbooking

Well I am back again today with some exciting news...

I was asked to be Guest Designer for a challenge blog called Off the Rails Scrapbooking.  Its a relatively new challenge blog with loads of inspiration and great challenges each month.  Its not very often I get asked to do this sort of thing so I jumped at the chance.  

This month the challenge is "Bling it Up"

oooh I was chance to go all sparkly...and that I did!

"Happy Memory"

I was so excited to just do something for fun. I have used some of the gorgeous MME paper range Cut and Paste...yeah finally getting around to using some of the papers I got before I had Luca :)))

Beautiful Manor House flowers and the butterfly chipboard piece is from Scrap FX as well as some Freckled Fawn heart chipboard pieces.

I totally loved getting my Twinkling H20's out again for my background,  I used Coral Berry...such a delicious colour, its sort of a combination of pink/red/orange and my Tim Holtz Distress loads of gold sequins.

Hope you have a go at this and glitter is all the trend at the moment so if you have been wanting to have a is your chance.

Thanks so much to Amanda Sousa and her team for having me this month.

Have a wonderful weekend :))

Flying Unicorn March KOM - Part 2

Hi my crafty friends :)

I am back today to share with you another project from the March KOM at Flying Unicorn.  Such a versatile kit jammed packed with lots of the latest products. In the Mixed Media Add On there were a tray of water colour paints.  I used a combination of these paints and gelatos to get the effect below over my masked area.

"Your Smile" 

And for some close ups....

The Petaloo flowers were part of the kit but the Prima flowers are from my own these colours together...yellow makes me so happy :))

Will be back with more very soon :))
Thanks for visiting xo

Flying Unicorn March KOM - Part 1

Hi everyone,

Well its another new month so another new kit is available at Flying Unicorn.  This month its pack full of  gorgeous papers from the Authentique– Classic Elegant Collection.  Authentique is a paper range that I am not too familiar with but I must say I love the quality of the papers. Anyway this paper range has my favourite colour amongst it and looks so striking against the black.

"Best Day Ever"

The beautiful Petaloo blue and black flowers were just stunning in this kit and matched in perfectly.

Sigh...the peacock chipboard in the kit was a real winner! And I couldn't believe it when the kit also came with some gorgeous aqua blue feathers...I knew right away what I was going to do with them both...give my little peacock a feathery tail :)))

I have altered the peacock and feathers also with some Silks Acrylic that stuff!

And my big boy turned 7 yesterday and it was an all weekend birthday!! He had a fun little lego party with his friends..
Happy Birthday my gorgeous little you so much xxx

And how could I resist in not sharing this photo of my 3 little men...

I will be back soon with some more of my DT work using this gorgeous kit.
Thanks for stopping by :)
Hugs xo
