Flying Unicorns Kit of the Month - Feb Layout

  The kit was packed with Inkido and Kaisercraft, laces, a mask, paint, mists, chipboard and wood embellishments, flowers and metal.   This is not, however a valentines themed kit, I just happened to make this layout a little more romantic. 

I used the Inkido Beautiful Memories paper, Beige Flowers, then the next layer on top of that is a pretty little journal card from Heartwarming Vintage, they sell journal cards and vintage sentiments on one collage style card.   

The wooden words are from 13 Arts.  I love them because they are wooden and because they are a significant size.   I left mine neked since the natural color went with the look of my page. 

The little wooden words, "Love You" are Cosmo Cricket's wooden hearts embellishments.  I left them neked too since they matched the 13arts words.   The Cosmo Cricket comes in the kit as well.  It can also be purchased here Cosmo Cricket  - Heart wood charms.  

If you scroll down, I have listed the products, product codes and some links to the Flying Unicorns store for your shopping convenience. 

Drip marks, mists, paints.....ohhhh I am such a coward when it comes to mists and such.   I go light.  Someday perhaps I'll try bold, but for now I remain a coward.   What I do to stay light is to paint my page lightly with clear gesso and let it dry.  Then I can usually mist all I want and wipe away any over misting or boldness.   Then I use my heat gun to dry the mist right away. 

On this page, I also used some yellow Faber Castel Gelaos as well and rubbed around the page with my fingers and some water mist.   This smoothes the gelato out and blends it a bit.

February's YOUR ART. YOUR PASSION. IS NOW AVAILABLE! Like the years past - Art should be a passion and not an obligation - so there are no sign ups for our kits and once they are gone they are gone!
