Purrrrrrisian Kitty - Escape Kitty's - Flying Unicorns Your Passion Your Art March Escape Kitty



Escape Kitty's  Kitty (Kit) Reveal.....Spring in Paris with a Purrrrrisian Kitty

http://www.flyingunicornstore.com
We are welcoming spring with arms wide open. Flowers will begin to bloom, the bright sunshine, longer days and sweet soft warm breezes. Spring is just around the corner. Without further adieu, we proudly present our March Your Passion. Your Art , celebrating the romance of Spring!


This is Escape Kitty's dream - to sit in a cluster of flowers and gaze at the Eiffel Tower. Butterflies fluttering and the sun dappling the sky.  In this case it's Prima Mists, but it's cheery none the less. 

The only thing better would be if she had some company.  Stuck in the house all winter.  Well she tried to venture out at one point but the snow was several feet over her head.  So back in the house she came.  


The gorgeous golden flowers were made using layers of Prima Color Bloom mists sprayed into the flowers from the kit : Prima Flowers - Yellow 713331
Prima Flowers Luna Luminous 574666

March - Flying Unicorns Kit of the Month and 2Crafty - a perfect match




http://www.flyingunicornstore.com



We are welcoming spring with arms wide open. Flowers will begin to bloom, the bright sunshine, longer days and sweet soft warm breezes. Spring is just around the corner. Without further adieu, we proudly present our March Your Passion. Your Art , celebrating the romance of Spring!

I paired 2Crafty and Flying Unicorns together for some dramatic results.  You can see the blog post at 2Crafty here

Flying Unicorn has 2Crafty in the Store....so I thought I'd add some to my March "Your Passion Your Art" kit, including the amazing Hibiscus Frame.  This piece is art all on it's own. 

So here is a photo of the "Hibiscus Frame".  Pretty spectacular, don't you think?  Because of it's stand alone beauty, I decided not to cover it with paints or gels, beads or embossing enamel.  The natural color of the chipboard was actually perfect for the papers I was using.

I decided to cut the frame and use it on each of the corners of the layout.

The papers are from Authentique and were part of the Flying Unicorn kit for March - Your Passion Your Art.





This is "Live Laugh Love" from 2Crafty.  I wanted this to be bold because it is my sentiment.
I also used the


I also used the "Mini Word Set 1" m00542.  It's small and can be tucked anywhere as a subtle accent.  This is also in the store:  here

Here are some close ups of the chipboard for you to enjoy!

March Mixed Art - Flying Unicorns March Release




-------------------------------------------
Flying Unicorns March Release......


"Where there is Hope, there is Faith.  Where there is Faith, miracles Happen. "


http://www.flyingunicornstore.com


From the beginner to the avid mixed media artist our Mixed Art add on kit will surely please you. Our Mixed Art kit will always come with a canvas and mixed media art supplies to advance your skills as an artist.


This month the canvas is an 8x10.  I used a whole lot of ink on this and created my background from old book pages.  The junky old book is from 1895 so it is very very brittle - cool looking but brittle as all heck.   Before it had a chance to crumble to pieces, I placed it onto the canvas and help it secure with a lot of gel medium. 


The incredible richness in the flowers comes from a lot of misting.  Misting and drying.
These are the original flowers.  With some Prima Color Bloom mists, they transformed into rich, golden posies.



The crackle effect was achieved by coating a thick layer of Prima Gold Crackle Texture gel onto the canvas and letting it air dry.  Then after it was dry, I ran my Tim Holtz Distress pad  in Vintage Photo over the canvas.

My lace was also sprayed with Color Blooms and the Flying Unicorn Metal Adornments was polished with Rub-N-Buff  to make the metal etching pop a little.


Thanks a million for visiting.  Grab your kit ASAP because they fly out the door quickly.

You can alway pre-order on the 20th of every month to ensure your box is available.
