Flying Unicorn JulyYour Passion Your Art KOM part 1

Hi everyone! I have a couple of projects to share with you that I have created with the Flying Unicorn July Your Passion Your Art Kit ofthe Month. I just LOVE the 13 ARTS papers in the kit! They have such beautiful textures on their background and are perfect for mixed media projects. First I have a layout that I created with them.

There are two 13 ARTS stencils in the kits and I have used some 13 ARTS texture paste in the background.

The kits also are loaded with yummy Petaloo flowers, butterflies and those fun Prima resins!

I also love the rub ons in the kit! They add so much to a background.

Next I have a Canvas that I created with the 13 ARTS papers as well. For this project I used lots of embellishments from the kit and my stash Shimmerz paints.

I painted some of the resin butterflies with gesso and did lots of background masking on my canvas.


One more close up of all the texture and beautiful kit embellishments!

Well that it for today. I will be back with lots more I created with this kit! Take care and happy scrapping J

Mojo Monday Sketch from the Flying Unicorn

Hi everyone. Today I have a layout that I created from the Flying Unicorns Mojo Monday Sketch. Alda created the sketch and it is just amazing! I have used lots of goodies from the Flying Unicorn store for this layout of my cutie pie grandson at the beach. I used Prima Seashore Collection and it was perfect for these photos.

I added some Shimmerz Dimentions in the background and used all the Prima Seashore Collection add ons. I also tucked in some pieces of Creative Embellishments chippys with the flower clusters.

Love those Prima resin pieces!

One last closeup of the Seashore Collection pieces.
Well that is is for today…don’t forget for all your scrappy goodies to head on over the Flying Unicorn store! Everything on this layout is available there! Take care and Happy Scrapping!

Memories - Creative Embellishments

Hi everyone! I am up on the blog at Creative Embellishments today and I  have a layout to share. I just love the colors of these Riddersholm papers from the Flying Unicorn store... and decided to alter my chippy flourishes to match the paper colors. This is Flourish set 22 and there are two for you to play with in this set.

I love the way the flourishes turned out! All I did to alter them was cover them first with some gesso, let that dry, and then I painted them with two colors of Shimmerz Inklinz. When I heat them it created a texture on the chippys.

Here are two more close-ups. These chippys are just gorgeous tucked in with the clusters.


There is also still time to play along in this months challenge! Make sure to share all of your creations on our Facebook page. Take care and happy Scrapping!

Grand Uni & Dolls Bloghop Party - June 19th to 21st

Welcome to the Grand Uni & Dolls bloghop party! If you have come from Lainie’s Blog, then you are in the right place. If not then begin from the beginning at, because you do not want to miss a thing!
We have an amazing line up of creative and inspirational projects all centering on Julie Nutting Mixed Media Doll Stamps. Let us get this party hopping! I have created two tags for the hop. For both I have used Prima’s Stationer’s Desk Collection and my tip is an easy one…try to use matching collection papers when dressing your Doll and you can use a marker to enhance some of the stamped markings or to fill in little stamped areas...such as her shoes.


For my second tag I have used the same collection and added some Creative Embellishment chippys in the background. I also added some chippy wings to my doll and I love the way she turned out! Another tip is to use some pop ups on  your doll….it gives her dimention!


Want to win the doll I used or any of the other ones, the choice will be yours along with Time Traveler or Seashore collection paper pack by Prima. To be eligible all you have to do is:

Fun Memories Together - Creative Embellishments

Ahoy everyone! This is my very first post at Creative Embellishments blog! First off I have to say these chippys are amazing and I am enjoying using them on my creations! They are loaded with detail and the selection is out of this world! For my post today I have decided to use this months challenge mood board at Creatove Embellishments...and go with a beachy feel layout. I have used Prima's Seashore Collection from the Flying Unicorn store.


Tucked in behind the layers you can see pieces of the Moroccan Lattice Panel sticking out. I sometimes love to just use naked chippys and leave them their natural beautiful color. The little heart is from the Together Frame Set.

I am in love with these frame sets! I have layered them….one under and one above my photo. They are from the Together Frame Set and You RockFrame Set.

After the layout was complete I added some splashes of colors with Shimmerz mists and paints and I love the little drops and drips on the chippys.

I hope you join along in this months challenge! Make sure to share all of your creations on our Facebook page. Take care and happy Scrapping!
