"Creations Using March KOM "Sweet Days" Flying Unicorn CT work

Hello Bloggers!! Here are some of my Creations Using our March KOM "Sweet Days"... I loved playing with this kit!!! Soooo Much fun!! The OTP ROCKED!!!

First up My OTP.... I loved doing this Clock!!

Here are some close ups..
Lots of Dusty Attic and a piece of Scrap FX.. Numbers are TH Grunge board letters.

Had to add a little Marie in there too!!

All flowers and Vines are Prima.. They are part of my very hoarded stash.. They are also discontinued . I have had these forever just waiting for the right project and well this was it! The Butterflies are also Prima.
The Pattern Papers was Fabscraps. I have had these papers as well for a while. I used the Studio blank canvas that came in the kit to cover all the chippy pieces.The clock hand I altered a bit with the Prima clock hand that I got from the Flying Unicorn store. The bling is wintersong collection you can find it here. The Numbers and fence I used Lumiere which is coming soon to the store along with a bunch of new Dusty Attic and ScrapFX so stay tuned to the store to get your hand on these must have items.

Ok Here is the LO's that I did using this Gorgeous Kit!!

The Kaisercraft Frame is in the Paper addon and the Frame around My DD and DH also Kaisercraft. The Base is Websters pages Clean and simple and it is in the main kit as well as the bird. The Yellow roses are from the Flower addon. The Blue are Prima from my hoarded stash ( I am making room for the Yummy Flowers fixing to hit the store soon! ;) ) The little white flowers which I love as fillers can be found in the Flying Unicorn store here. I used the Studio blank canvas to highlight areas around the pic it is in the main kit. All the little pearls are the Viva pearl pens that come in the embellishment addon. The title is ScrapFX more new ScrapFX coming to the store soon too!! I used some Lindy's mist on the title to highlight it and lightly edged with the Viva pearl pen from the embellishment addon with a paint brush. Here are some close ups of this one.

Next LO

Most all of the papers used here are from the Main kit, I also used a little from the Paper addon. These are all Kaisercraft Marigold collection. The rubbons is in the Main kit as well as the diecut and bird. The flowers are all from the flower addon, with the exception of the blue ones (hoarded stash, Yes its a large one! LOL) The Ribbon die cut at the bottom is from the emblishment addon. The title is ScrapFX, also treated with the blank canvas and misted with Lindy's. Here are some close ups of this LO..

All of these are from the PP addon. And the flowers are from the Flower addon with exception of white ones I used the Viva pearl pen from the embellishment addon to create the centers. The title letters and bird are from the Main Kit.  The little subtitle is from the embellishment kit. Here are some close ups of this one.

Nothing touches their glowing

Their softness forever one sees

**Playing With Kaiser Craft Base coat collection**

Hey guys! I have been Playing with the amazing "Base Coat" Collection from KaiserCraft! I must say this PP is truly amazing!! Wow I love the rich textures of it!! You can find it in the Flying Unicorn store. I need to be working on other projects but well I had this PP and couldn't stand not playing with it a little. The textures really just called me in.. I also seen a really cool tute on the Prima blog from Solange, showing her process which was really amazing to watch!! So I thought I would give this one more try.. Heehe can't blame a girl for trying. I also thought notice the word thought I could make it a little different and still come out with the same effect.. Well not so much. I used the packing tape transfer technique. thinking I could more easily morph my photo on my LO.. It did kinda work but not really.. I mean misting on it wasn't a issue because I could just wipe it right off. But still just didn't do what I thought it would. Any how here is my LO using this collection and the techniques more or less from Solange.

What I used:
Dusty Attic- Chippy Wattle Blossom Coming soon to the store, Flowers Wild Moss, Corn silk
Pinkpaislee - Butterfly garden butterflies
seam binding for the bow

Molding paste
Lindy's mists (colored mostly with these) Seamist green, Green with Envy green, Saxifrage Olive copper, Opal sea oats, Edelweiss moss green Coming soon to the store!
Crafters work shop mask- Branches 6x6 

My DD is graduating this year and boy have there been talks about what she is wanting to do. That is how I came up with the title. The path kinda formed in the LO I enhanced it with some gesso to make it pop... I hope you can grab some of these PP they are amazing to work with! Talk to ya soon! Hugs all!!
