All I can say about this new add on is OMG!!!! So so so cool!!! I have been wanting to get my feet wet in the art journaling area. And well this kit was perfect!! I am giving this to my DD as I had her in mind when I put it all together. I want her to play along with fun stuff too! But Mom got to decorate the cover and 1 page. The rest is her's! hehehe Well Mom had to have some fun to right?! Here is my Journal cover and page..

The goodies in this kit to play with is sooooo FUN!! I did add some Lindy's from the Flying Unicorn store for the purple colors.. The fairy was also a addtion from my stash as well as a black pen and some large alpha that I used as a mask to get the word art. But the stamps and paint and Flying Unicorn adornments Yep they are there!! Here are some close ups!

Now for one of the page inserts that comes with this cool journal!!! I got to do a Tammy version of "She Art" I call it a Tammy version, because well I stamped things out separately on scraps of pp (Fabscraps), Bobunny scraps too and cut them all out and applied to a stamped version on white CS.. LOL Control freak!! But I did have fun!! I used the new Julie Nutting Prima stamp that I got from the Flying Unicorn store! Also MH and Flying Unicorn flowers. Tons of masking and Misting (all Lindy's). TH banners die was used as well.

** Canvas and Tag fun!**

Hello Everyone! Thought I would share a couple of projects with you today. One is a canvas that I had originally did for the WCYDW post last week.. Due to technical issues from porting from Ipad to Youtube of the length it didn't make it!. So I had to race and get another one done for it and well a tag was born from that process! I figured out the remasking process from the canvas. It was a experiment.. Actually on the canvas it didn't work like I wanted it to. Mainly because I had already painted it and it seemed the ink didn't wanna soak into the mask area. It just smeared, but I did learn what not to do! So ta da a tute was born!! YAY!!! Here is the pieces..

Here is the close up of the canvas. 

What I used:
Canvas 6x6
Lumiere Pearl Turquoise, Violet gold, Pewter, Pearl white ( Coming soon)
Prima Blue flower
Bird pieces from Alda Most all available in the Flying Unicorn Store!

Next up a close up of the tag I made. Mostly out of scraps from a pryor KOM.

Here you can see the masking technique in the BG of the tag.
What I used:
TH Banner die

Hope you all have a Great Day! :)

"Card/Tag Challenge Flying Unicorn"

Hey everyone! Welcome to my Card/Tag Challenge this month! With Mother's Day quickly approaching, I thought it would be cool to do a card you could give your Mom's, or any lady that you would like to surprise, with a Flower pot of beautiful blooms! Here is what we will be doing..

The Tag is there too!!

I used the TH's Tag die for mine! But.. I have made it where you can use any tag your heart desires!! Here is my tag pulled out with gift card attached. I wanted to have one big enough for a gift card to fit on it. The TH die worked perfectly for this!
I hope you all will join in on the Fun and Play Along!! Here is a link to the forums..Have a great day!

**KOM April "Whispers of Spring" Lo's and Close ups Flying Unicorn**

 This first one I used the Prima "Lifetime collection"on the whole LO. Masked Mask is Prima(Flourish 12x 12) the BG with black gesso and then sprayed some Lindys and added gesso to the whole piece lightly.
April KOM Main and Addon's was used.

Close ups

This collection was perfect for these pics of my Grandma and my new little cousin. My Aunt sends me pics from time to time to use and the pinks from my Grandma's robe was a perfect match to the pinks in the flowers from the Prima "Lifetime collection".

On this next LO I used the Studio 75 and Bo Bunny. I masked the back ground with Turkish Grunge 6x6 mask and Texture paste. Then used the Lindy's from the kit and some of the Pearlex that was also in the kit.
I added a couple more of Lindy's mists with the drips and then sprayed a 2nd color as well. I did add some Manor House Flowers ,Prima wooden embellies, Prima light bulb and a Dusty Attic piece from my stash. To go along with the Yummy Prima Vine and the Prima roses that came in the Kit.

Close ups

 I used KaiserCraft "75 cents" collection the KaiserCraft blue roses, Dusty attic flowers, and Offray flowers. The Ribbon came in the kit it is by G45, Flying Unicorn Metal adornments, Scrap FX title chippy and some Maya Road Letter chippies. On the entire frame I used TH tape and Vintage Photo stain. I Loved working on this frame and it sets in my living room now! It was a project that almost was a total mess. I had a glue malfunction! LOL But after it dried it was ok. Talking about nervous! The 75 Cents collection is one of my faves to date and totally loved using it on this project! 

Hope you get one of these kits they sell out quick! Oh and if you get one don't forget to post your project here LINK and show us your gorgeous creations! Hope you have a great weekend!
