Flying Unicorns - Mixed Media Kit June

Flying Unicorns presents the Mid Month Muse for June- Mixed Media Inspired  
This kit is a compilation of all the essentials to make some cool projects - mists, florals, canvas, masks, metallic rubon, chipboard and more. 

I made two projects from my Mixed Media Kit this month, a banner and a mail holder.  First the banner, shown above. 

I prepared a SHORT video showing how I created this.  It's less then 4min and yes, my hands  fly super fast but I just want to give you the idea and the feel for what I am doing without all the pain of watching paint dry!  

I had some old doilies that I tucked into the corners.  

Here is a close up of my embossed letter with inked edges. 

Here is the gorgeous metal Adornment from the Flying Unicorns.   You can leave "as is" seen below for a vintage feel or you can paint, emboss, use alcohol inks and whatever your mind can envisions to finish the metal adornments.

Mail Holder
I created this with my husband in mind. He loves to stick things on the fridge and I prefer a clean fridge.   Well, if I can provide him some kind of compromise and a place to stick his bills, then we both win (only I win a little more hahahaaa).  

I created this mail holder. 

I stared out with the large 18in x27in canvas from the kit.  I cut a width of 12 inches and noted where my top was.  The top has a pocket for doweling or a rod for hanging. 

So I set out to use the large canvas in the kit and fold it so that to would form little pouches.  I punched holes where the folds met, and used a long decorative brad to hold the canvas in place.  You can sew the canvas on the side if you prefer, but I chose not to do that. 
 Here I embossed the letters with Stampendous Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel, inked the edges a little with  some Mixd Media Inx in Mossy, and dabbed with some brown ink.

My sweet little butterfly has a Prima Pearl in green.

 Thanks a million for stopping by.
