Last projects with the October Kit Of The Month for The Flying Unciorn

Hi everyone!! 

Today I wanted to show you a layout I created for The Flying Unicorn using their October kit Of The Month

Now, sadly this has sold out and this happens EVERY month because The Flying Unicorn is NOT a kit club and the kits are so gorgeous that they go very very fast. So not being a kit club means you do not sign up to get a kit every month which is something a lot of people do not like incase you are stuck with a kit you dont like. Nope! At the Flying Unicorn the kits are released around the 1st of each month and you do need to follow their website HERE or blog HERE or Facebook HERE to see the kits before they sell out. 

This is what October's one looked like..You will find all the details and the add ons HERE 




Here are my last 2 cards I created with this gorgeous kit

This is what the kit looks like this month..

A card for Prima!

Hey there everyone! I hope this finds you well. I am here today to share with you a card I created for Prima using their new mixed media products and flowers. 

For this project we were asked to focus on creating a watercolour effect and the Color Blooms are awesome for doing that. 

If you are in the USA please check out The Flying Unicorn as it carries almost all of these products at their store HERE

If you are in Australia please have a look at Sassy Scrapper as they also have almost everything I use on my Prima projects HERE







I started by using the Soft Matte Gel  medium to adhere some A4 Watercolor Paper to the front of the card, before using some stamps, tissue tape and tissue paper to create a bit of contrast in the background. 


I then applied some White Gesso and wiped it with a baby wipe to make it almost translucent. 




I used the Prima stitch square stamp in the centre and then I then used  Silver Metallic Chalk Edger  and Attic Dust Chalk Edger  to colour in the squares and used the gel medium again to adhere the silver mica flakes 





I added some of my fave Prima embellies, like the Resin Window Frame and some of the gorgeous Prima flowers and created a centre of attention . 

Lastly, I used Cobalt Color Bloom Spray to add some colour. I started lightly around the sides of the embellishments and sprayed water as I was going to give it a softer appearance as well as a water colour effect. In other areas, I used the nozzle directly onto the paper to give it a darker look. 

I also used Precious Stone Color Bloom to add a contrasting effect and some splatters. 

I used some new blue flowers called Melbourne Harbour (!) and some resin and chipboard to finish my layers.
