June Flying Unicorn OTP

Canvas Techniques
Flying Unicorn is celebrating the start of those lazy days of summer. June's "Your Passion Your Art" features a 13Arts collection that really feels like a warm relaxing summer day - hazy, warm and dreamy. Without further adieu we offer you our June - Your Passion. Your Art kit of the Month

 Included in each Main Kit, is always a fun and unique "off the Page " item. We have the perfect "Off the Page" piece to help celebrate - a sweet wooded lighthouse. 
I decided to make a shadow box scene by combining the black canvas from the Mixed Art kit for June and the OTP from the main kit. 

I painted my canvas first.  Then decided to add my lighthouse.  I toyed with cutting the thing in half.  Decided that it was not realistic.  

Yeah - it was quite the challenge to get that lighthouse into the backside of the canvas. It did involve a few impolite words I must admit.  It also involved a  significant amount of persuading and ultimately some gentle pounding with a mallet.   Alas - my sweet wooden lighthouse is never coming free from this wooden canvas frame.  It is wedged very snugly. 

With that, I proceeded to gussy and decorate. 

Part of my gussying included 2Crafty chippies.  One of the pieces was a most amazing recent release -the anchor shown below.
