Flying Unicorn Media Canvas featuring Julie Nutting Dolls




Flying Unicorns Media Add-On mixed with Julie Nutting

When I think mixed media and Mixed Art, I think a little differently than most.  I don't think gels and pastes and gesso. Noooooooo way!  I think of mixing my two favorite things - Flying Unicorns and Julie Nutting Doll Stamps.  Now THAT's Jennifer style Mixed Media.  Oh yeah baby - now we're talkin' spooky great fun.


http://www.flyingunicornstore.com/category_s/1422.htm

From the beginner to the avid mixed media artist our Mixed Art add on kit will surely please you. The Flying Unicorns Mixed Art kit will always come with a canvas and this month we have included an 8x10 black canvas ready for you to get your mojo going. Oh and an extra special wooden paint palette has been included for you to use or alter with paints Flying Unicorn Adornments and mists galore.






I started with the black canvas and cracked open the Prima -Julie Nutting stamp packages.  I started with Valentina ( found here ) my base.  Then I added her hat that  I grabbed from Prima Julie Nutting Hats #1 910822 and the Halloween sentiment that came from Julie Nutting's Witchy Poo Stamp found here.  Mixing and matching - yep THAT'S MIXED MEDIA. 
The Media kit comes with a cool stencil that I used fro my background textures.   The resin hearts from the banner also are part of the media kit.

The sweet witchy Valentina doll is dressed in an assortment of papers from G45 as listed in my supplies below.





I used a few chipboard pieces from 2Crafty to help accent my canvas.  I added the "Iron Fence" which I left natural and neked and I added the "Grass Clumps".  These were inked green and dotted with Prima Art Extravagance glitter from the Mardi Gras set (those are fun colors just like the name suggests).



Thanks a bunch.  Never miss a kit from the Flying Unicorns - with the new Pre-order option available the 20th of each month.  A great way to preview and get only the kits you really want.

Flying Unicorns Oct OTP ( Off the Page and Altered) - Coffin

Welcome to the Spookiest Month of the Year at the Flying Unicorns - October!  
This is the month that pretty gets set aside and all things creepy come out.

Flying Unicorns  main kit is never complete without an off the page project to get you creatively thinking outside the page! Our off the page is spooktacular with a wood coffin and a masquerade mask. 

I chose to use the coffin as my first "off the Page Project" - the mask will be featured on a different day so stay tuned.



Here is  a different view.  I am providing a bunch of views because, well, such a spooky fun creation cannot be adequately captured in a shot or two. There are a whole lot of fun details here.  Some metal adornments from the Flying Unicorn Store to large Prima flowers and 2Crafty Chipboard. 




This was way too much fun to make - tucking little goodies here and there and inking the an eerie shade of goblin green and purple.

The Skeleton was purchased from a Halloween store and he fit inside his new home rather nicely.   


I think he's looking rather dapper with his metallic eyeballs,his happy grin and his heart on his chest.  Big question still remains...who will get the key to his heart?

Prima and Julie Nutting Ornament



Prima and Julie Nutting  create Christmas Magic!

 See the Prima post here.

Julie Nutting has created some cool and innovative Christmas Ornaments. The new ornaments are sure to bring joy to homes all around the world.  They are darling, unique and full of holiday cheer. 

The ornaments are wood and come with tassle, wings and ribbon to use for hanging. 

I created my ornament using a few simple easy steps. 






Simple Easy Steps
  1. Add text to star border.
  2. Attach lace to back of star shape.
  3. Stamp and create additional wings to set on top of chipboard wings.
  4. Decorate with art mediums!


Step 1:  Use a pen to add some text to the edges of the star.  I wrote Love, Peace, Joy.
Step 2:  Add a layer of lace to the back of the star for a delicate touch. 

Step 3:  Grab Prima and Julie Nutting's adorable wing stamp (910303 Prima Julie Nutting - Wings Stamp) and stamp your favorite paper.  I love Cigar Box Secrets.  Add cardboard to the back for a dimensional layered effect. 




Step 4:  Every Angel wants to shine so give her some glam with Glitter. 

Thanks for stopping.
