July Flying Unicorns - Butterfly Mixed Media Piece

Flying Unicorns July Release

The July kit from the Flying Unicorns was quite a beautiful treat filled with natural elements and an earthy feel.   The featured collection is 49 and Market.  The papers are beautifully subtle so I kept this piece in all neutrals.  

This piece is available in my ETSY shop.  You can see it right here.  I am also having a 30% off sale through Labor Day (Sept4th). Anything you select will be 30% off.  Use code "KITTY30" at checkout.  

My finished project really did not venture too far from the original inspirational sheet of 12x12 from 49th and Market.  I looked at the soft graphic on the sheet and decided to use that framework.  This sheet is called Botanical Press and you can see that my project pretty much uses the graphics on the page as the design.  

I cut the butterflies or moths from the Flora and Fauna Cutout sheet and layered them over  kraft paper and some woven mesh I had in my stash. 

In the image below, you can see the mesh type material I used.  It cam from the floral department and is like a natural straw type weave.  

I accented the piece with buttons, string and the flowers from 49th and Market that cam in the July kit.  
The chipboard word, Believe, came from Creative Embellishments in a prior Unicorn kit and I left basically unfinished  with exception to the few splatters of gold paint on the word.  

You can see a giant assortment of chipboard at the Flying Unicorn.  Creative Embellishments are located here.  Many other varieties of chipboard are located here.  

Now for the bottom corner of the page...the kit came with a cool little piece of driftwood that I broke in half and incorporated onto the page as my natural element. 

Thanks for stopping by.  The Flying Unicorn kits move fast.  If you missed the kit already, you may want to think about the pre-order option avail starting the 20th of each month.  This provides you with a complete look at all the items and products contained in the kit.  You have 48 hours to purchase.  Now that's a great deal.  All the details can be found right here
