May Flower Fantasy At Flying Unicorn

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

FLOWER FANTASY! You know we've always got something happening at the Flying Unicorn and May is no exception, so be sure to join us May 1st as we kick off our Flower Fantasy month! We've joined up with Manor House to bring you a new challenge each week. The Creative Team and designers from Manor House willl be showcasing Manor House's beautiful blooms on our example projects. There will be Manor House flower RAKS too!!

Since it is Flower Fantasy month at the Flying Unicorn, what could be better than flower tutorials? The CT will be posting a different flower tutorial each and everyday of May. The tutorials will be revealed each day on the Today post with a link to each tute. We like giving away "stuff" almost as much as we like scrapping, so, of course there will be randomly awarded RAKS to 3 lucky people that post their flowers made using any of the CT flower tutorials

As always, we'll have our monthly challenges and RAKS too. The Flying Unicorn is a "happening place," come join in our May Flower Fantasy!

Sunday Almanac

Sunday, April 22, 2012

Happy Sunday!
I love Sunday's because the sun is out, the skies are blue, and the Almanac yumminess is on the table! What Almanac you ask? Well the new Prima Almanac, available in the Flying Unicorn Store of course! This line is so versatile and beautiful, I decided to make some tags today, let me share them with you!


Love this, I used some Tattered Rose Distress Ink to match the colors on the papers, some liquid pearls in Bisque all available in the store I also used some twine, and crochet lace, here are some closeups!





Here is the second tag I made using some Prima packaging, always upcycling! Love it!







The flowers are also made from the packaging, sweet stuff eh? Loved making these, so be sure to stop by the Flying Unicorn Store and get your own Prima Almanac papers, they are so wonderful and so versatile for any project!!
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a crafty Sunday!

Project W005: Layering 101 Part 2; Adding Layers

Friday, April 13, 2012

Hi Everyone!
Happy Friday!
I have not been around much this week! I am so sorry!!! I have been busy with school, and work. I have  12 page paper to finish up for my class and that has taken up most of my time!!! But, not to worry, I still have a new Project W for you today. Continuing on from last time, I wanted to focus on layering. This week I am showing you how to use different media to layer, paper, stamping, twine etc.! I am always asked how I layer and to be honest it is something that comes naturally to everyone I think. It just requires patience and some imagination! First, let me show you the project I made for this project sheet.

This one was a fun one to make, and I hope you can also have fun this weekend and have a go at some layering. Here is the project sheet!

Enjoy and have fun this weekend, I hope I was able to inspire you. Thank You for all the amazing comments, it keeps me loving what I do!
