Your Passion Your Art Flying Unicorn KOM LO

Hi all! Its that time again to share some projects using Flying Unicorn's Your Passion Your Art KOM for June! Love love alll The 13 Art goodies!! Love 13 Arts to bits and this Kit was loaded with them! Here is a LO that I created of my son who will be a senior next year! I am feeling old now!...

I used the Main Kit to make this LO.. The only addition was the Yellow Petaloo Texture blooms and the black 13 Arts ink. The stitch stamps was even included in this kit! The Large Stars I created a mask from a old stencil that I have had for ages. One of the first I have ever owned. This kit also has a star mask included. Was total scrappy fun to create this LO.

Here are a couple of close ups..

Flying Unicorn Mixed Art Your Passion Your Art June KOM Canvas

Hello all! Back today to share what is growing to be my fave part of the Flying Unicorn KOM. The Mixed Art! They are always loaded with cool mediums to play around with! I like to try to play with each one. I am learning new goodies to play and have fun with too!! This was also loaded with 13 Arts! Here is my canvas..

I think I was thinking a Midsummer's Night with this one.. The Prima Cherry blossom vine was calling me to make a draping vine and the black canvas was a perfect back drop! Did you know in this kit there is a medium where you can turn ANY paint or ink into kinda molding paste?! Yes you mix the powder with your ink or paint and if using ink you will need to used some clear acrylic gel medium (this will give your ink something to stick too ;) ) but Wow all the possibilities of color!! Super FUN!!

Products Used:
Mixed Art KOM
Mixed Passion KOM
Creative Embellishments "Dream"

Petaloo and Marion Smith Blog hop

Hello everyone! Thrilled to be playing along with Marion Smith and Petaloo for our Dads and Grads Blog hop! Love love Marion Smith's "TimeKeeper" Oh so much vintage Yumminess! Petaloo blooms was the icing on the perfect cake! Check out the details HERE on how to win Yummy goodies!!

My Project has a little story behind it.. I pondered for a long while on what exactly I wanted to do for this hop. Sometimes I get nervous about what exactly I want to do.. Then other times I am just blank. I wanted to do something in the line of Father's Day, but what exactly, was eluding me. So my hubs came in one day after a storm had swept through. He had been outside looking at our garden. He said to me "we had a crash landing in our garden". I looked at him with the biggest HUH?! look. He laughed and pulled out this little toy glider that was picked up from who knows where from the storm. Almost instantly I knew what I wanted to do for this hop! Yup I took the plane and ran with it! I actually used it to make a pattern and all! Here is what I came up with..
I had to invent the tail wings, but all in all was the exact pattern from the little glider. I traced it out on some thin cardboard. Then covered it with the Cogs and Gear Sheet form the Marion Smith's "Timekeeper" collection. I used a Petaloo Darjeeling Mini Mix in Cream as a makeshift propeller. I thought it looked like the engine was on and it was ready for takeoff! For the cockpit I used a little section from the Tinker sheet of the Timekeeper papers. I also added a little bit of Petaloo lace in cream for details here and there. The plane needed a banner to fly also! Just to tell Dad just how loved he is! Here are some pics of the banner area..
  On this area I used more of the Darjeelings Mini Mix and a the Gorgeous Botanica's in Teal. To kinda give a cloud like look (and to slip in some more flowers too ;) ). I used some more of the Tinker sheet from the Timekeeper collection to make my banner and stamped some sayings.  I did used little buttons from my stash as wheels too. This was a super fun project to do! It would make a great project for the little ones to get involved with too for Dad! Here are a couple of pics of the banner and plane as a whole..
