Flying Unicorn November KOM LO

Hi all! Here today to share with you a LO made with the Nov KOM. This month I got the pleasure of scrapping my daughter and her boyfriend. I had a awesome time with these 2 kiddos. Taking pics then scrapping them. I could gush on for hours.. But I need to show you all what I have done with this AMAZING KOM! Here is the LO..

Here are a couple of close ups..

I expanded my flower supply by tearing them apart and cutting them in half. I used some CE ivy chippies to make my vine clusters a little fuller as well..

I just had to use the little JN chippies in the lower cluster, it had a adorable little boy and girl in it.

I used mixed pieces of each kit a a bit from my stash to create this. Here is what I used

Main Kit- paper, die cuts, Flying Unicorn adornment, blue flowers, Bo bunney stickers title area

Franken Dude! Creative Embellishments fun!!

Hello all you crafty folks out there in cyber land!! Here today to share with you a Tag I made for Creative Embellishments! Ok so I did some Halloween shopping in the store. I fell in love with the Monster Mash Set. I wasn't sure what I wanted to make with it. I love the image and well the song does bring back memories for me. I had that record as a child! LOL So I decided to do a tag. Now I wanted to use allll the images that is in the set. So my tag had to be quite large. Here is my tag..

I used the Authentique "Thrilling" collection to make the tag. I seem to gravitate toward that paper line for my Halloween creations. The center background is a Prima Package that use to have a vine. Now it is a piece of my tag! A couple of prima flowers and my Ghoulish flower that I made. How about some close ups?!

For the chippies I colored them first with 13arts vivid green paint, edged with a Prima black coal inker and then added in a bit of Silks in Key lime. The base to my Franken Dude is actually a tissue paper covered with black gesso then layered the paints and Silks to achieve the colors.  How about another close up?

Same colors was used on the Title piece.

 Had fun making this spooky tag. Remember that Creative Embellishments is running a sale! Get your hands on some of the super cool Halloween chippies to adorn your Layouts Tags or cards!! Thank you for Joining me today!

Flying Unicorn Playdate Thursday

Flying Unicorn

Ghoulish Flower Tute
By: Tammy Henderson

Welcome to my play date Thursday! With all Hallows Eve quickly approaching I thought that it would be cool to do a tute on something creepy.. LOL So I am gonna show you at trick to treat your flowers with. Or this can be done on any project that you desire! 

Supply list:
Water mister
Liquid Frisket and Liquid frisket eraser- (Most important to get the effect below)
Flower punch or Die- I used Heartfelt Creations Vintage Floret

Now lets begin shall we?! 

1. You can choose to shape a little before, however it will loose it by the time we are done. But it does help with the final shaping bending and such, Not so stiff. I used 2 large, 2 medium and 1 small flower.

2. Now get some IZink in your fave color and splash some on here and there. I chose to used a reddish hue so it will look a little creepy with another brighter color.

3. Ok now give a good misting with some water.

4. Absorb some of the excess water buy rubbing color side down on your mat. This helps move the color around a bit more. 

5. Give a little distress ink touch around the edges in a coordinating color. 

Before starting this next part be sure your flowers are COMPLETELY DRY!! 

6. Now take some of the Liquid Frisket and dab some on each petal with a sponge brush. Not the center just the petals.

7. Take your Frisket eraser and dab with the corner of it the areas where the frisket is. this will pop apart the frisket and create a skin like effect. Be Careful not to over due as you don't want to remove the frisket. Just break it up some. 

8. Take some paint I used 13arts in white and brush on lightly. Don't completely coat. Just cover the frisket areas.

9. Add some Silks in a bright color. Here I used Key Lime. Go over the white areas. This is a glaze so the white below helps it pop the color.

10. Layer large to small shaping each layer as you go glue. A shaping tool or paint brush will help this process. Add a center of choice and wala a ghoulish flower is born! 

Happy Haunting all!
