Remember **CT Flying Unicorn - Prima BAP**

Hi everyone…I am here today with a layout that is quite different for me. I have used the NEW Prima Stationers Desk from the Flying Unicorn store and thought to myself…this looks perfect for the March Prima BAP I gave it a whirl. Here is my layout and the sketch I used.



I used many many layers of papers from the collection to achieve the sketch look. I also used some Prima Finnabair metals here and there on my layout.

This collection comes with some super fun tags and chipboard pieces that I have used in my layers. You can see some masking in the background with Shimmerz Texturez and I added a few splashes of some Shimmerz Hot Fudge Vibez.


The flowers are all from Prima and to finish it all off I have dabbed some gesso on everything. Have a great weekend everyone!

Mixed Media Canvas **French Heritage Collection - Fabscraps**

Hi everyone!! Today I have a mixed media canvas to share featuring the NEW Fabscraps French Heritage Collectoin…I love all of the fussy cut elements in this collection…I find it calming to fussy cut things out of paper!


The Canvas is covered with the collection papers and I have added some stamping, Shimmerz mists and tape for texture.


The chippys are also from the collection and I have covered them with some Stampendous Aged Embossing enamel.

Ok that is it for today…I will be back soon with more from the new Fabscraps Collections!  Make sure to swing by our Facebook page and Blog for more inspiration! The Flying Unicornstore carries this new collection! Take care and happy scrapping!

ATC Fun - Shimmerz

Hello everyone! Today is my day up on the Shimmerz blog! Recently I participated in an ATC Swap at the Flying Unicorn and the ATC’s I made are loaded with lots of Shimmerz goodies on them!

The first one has a wee bit of masking in the background with some Dazzelerz Spun Sugar and drizzles of Grammie Berry Pearlz. The metal butterfly has a layer of gesso on it and then topped off with some Grammie Berry, Gold Glimmer Blingz and a shot of Treasured Hymn Spritz. After I added the embellishments everything got a spray of Shimmeringz Goldie Lox.

The second ATC has splashes of Pearlz Blue By U and Gold Glimmer Blingz. I love using these paints on my metals to make them match my project. Once completed everything got a spray of Shimmeringz Goldie Lox…I love the shimmer of gold on everything!

My last ATC has Shimmerz Pink and Grammie Berry in the background. Guess what I sprayed on the completed ATC? Yepp you got it…Shimmeringz Goldie Lox J These ATC’s were s much fun to make and I hope the ladies I sent them all to enjoy them!
