Small Art Big Passion April - Flying Unicorns






http://www.flyingunicornstore.com
Our Small Art Big Passion is all about the love of making cards, tags atc's and anything in between.From Stamps, flowers, paper, embellishments and pretty things in between! These yummy goodies will enhance any of the kits or stand alone .

This is perfect for the person who makes cards and tag, smaller projects during the month; the person who loves new goodies each month but needs to watch a budget ( who doesn't these days, right?); a person who has limited time in the month; someone who doesn't have a lot f storage space so needs to be conscientious about the bulk of goodies that are coming in each month. 

This month we received a cool flower die - a dogwood type die.  I had so much fun with this. 






No I know the kits sell out super quick so consider doing Pre-orders. They start on the 20th of the month and are a sure way to get your kits each month.

April Your Passion Your Art - Going Off the Page

Flying Unicorn goes off the Page
http://www.flyingunicornstore.com

April Showers bring May flowers and our Your Passion Your Art celebrates the beginning of Spring and the sweet smells of the earth after that rainy spring day. Without further adieu we offer you our April Your Passion. Your Art kit of the Month


OK so this is the watering can that comes in the April Your Passion Your Art kit.  All silvery and shiny and such.  I rubbed the whole thing with Patina Rub N Buff and left it to dry - skipping the "buff" step.  This seems to have given the watering can some bite to hold my other embellishments. 

Next I used some floral mesh as a band around the middle.  I like dabs of burlap on this but didn't want the bulk and chunky look wrapping burlap around the whole can.  

While i made sure I secured the floral mesh with a lot of strong adhesive, I also tied some hemp cording around it  - adding to the look, but also beeping the mesh in place.

Mojo Monday with the Flying Unicorns


 Mojo Monday

Each Monday the Flying Unicorns hosts a sketch challenge - we call the "Mojo Monday".  This is my week to use the sketch and inspire your Mojo.  The weekly challenge can be found here.   Use whatever is in your stash and upload it to the challenge forum

So with that, Escape Kitty and I are up today strutting Kitty's stuff.   Kitty's being attended to by a team of cherub angels.  ahhh, that's the life.  Meanwhile she leaves me to do the work of scrapping the scene. 

The gorgeous sketch by Alda Stevens was a joy to use.   I pulled out the stash of Glitz "Pretty in Pink" that I bought from the Unicorn Store to use on my USTREAM show, March 18th.    It's one of my favorite  out-of-print collections, so make sure you scoop these papers up from the store here and use every little scrap like I am.  "waste not"! 



These papers lend themselves to lots of luxurious layering.   I also have accents of 2Crafty Chipboard (you can find a great selection of 2Crafty here).  I left the chipboard "neked" because the natural color of the chippies is rich and warm in keeping with the overall feel of the layout.    It's gotta be warm if it's for Kitty.  

I used the "Corner Doodled" 2Crafty Chippie in the top corner and '" Chicken Barbed Wire" in medium size near the photo layers.  You can also find more inspirational; pieces with 2Crafty Chipboard here
