Shona's Shabbylicious Flowers - Flying Unicorn

Hi everyone! It is Playdate Thursday at the Flying Unicorn and I have some Shabbylicious flowers for you to make. First off I save bits and pieces of burlap, canvas, trims etc…and these shabby flowers are perfect for those bits and pieces you have.
Here are the supplies for THREE flowers. I used some packaging to cut the 3 circles for the back. Than I cut 3 pieces of everything. Canvas, burlap, some cheese cloth or gauz, some May Arts trims pieces and some frayed bulap pieces.

Next step I did some cuts in the canvas and frayed it up a bit….tip: roll it in your hands to roughen up the look of the canvas pieces.
I also frayed up the burlap circles a bit.
Poke holes in the canvas and cardboard pieces and use an old brad to layer everything on. There is enough here for 3 flowers…so just use one of each for the flowers. Add in some cut pieces of the cheese cloth for added texture and for the last bit wind some of the burlap strands around the brad. See how the piece on the back give it all some stability.
Now you can use them as is…they are just gorgeous flowers but I have added some Shimmerz Coloringz to two of them to show you how easy it is to create your own colors! Just mist them and dry then with your heat tool.
These yummy flowers are now ready to use on your projects! Have a great week everyone!

play fun - Creative Embellishments

Hi everyone and happy hump day to you all! Today I am up on the Creative Embellishments blog and I have a mixed media layout to share featuring lots of Creative Embellishments goodies and some of the NEW Word Chippys…they are so much fun! I am a one/two word title girl so these word sets are so fabulous! I have also used my Flying Unicorn Jan kit and a sketch Mojo Monday Sketch from the Flying Unicorn.

In the top corner I have used a piece from the Wavy Film Strip set and some of the Chippy Snowflakes! I love how these snowflakes turned out. I just added a punched snowflake on top and used some gels and beads to cover it. Love how the chippys pokes out here and there!

Here are some of the NEW word pieces. There are SOOOO many new ones to choose from in the store too! I also tucked in a piece from the Photo Booth Film Strips set behind the photo. The background is stamped with the Grunge Snowflake Stamp. You can also see more of those yummy snowflakes in this closeup!

Beach Projects with Fabscraps Beach Affair and Shimmerz

Hi everyone. Today I have a couple of Beach projects to share created with the NEW Fabscraps Beach Affair collection and lots of  yummy Shimmerz in the background. First up is a layout of my cutie pie grandson at the beach.

This Collection is just gorgeous and was perfect for beach projects...look at the fun star fish on the papers, and the cute tags and postcards come with the collection! After I had added my embellishments to the layout I used some “Don’t Be Suede” Coloringz and let it drip a can see how it altered the white lace to a yummy soft brown color.

I also did some masking in the background with “Marti-Gold Digger Texturez” I just love that mandarine color of it..yummy. The fun banner was fussy cut from the Fabscraps Collection.


After my layout was complete and I covered the photo and added some dops of “Before Dawn Vibez” and “Brass Knuckles Inklingz”.

Next up I have a quick tag I made. The lighthouse is fussy cut from some of the paper in the collection and that cute postcard is also part of it.

First I masked the background and added both “Don’t Be Suede” and “Well Blue Me Down” Coloringz. I just adore these two colors together.

I also love to finish off my projects with little drips or drops of color and here I added “Brass Knuckles” and “Giddy About Green” Inklingz! LOVE that lighthouse piece...its so cute!


Ok that is it for today…such a fun collection to play with! Take care and happy scrapping!
