Since Colby and I are up at 6:30 while the rest of the house is still asleep, I'm taking the opportunity to type up a post with two other projects created with the August Flying Unicorn kit of the month Play In The Sunshine. There are less than 5 kits left, so hurry and get yours before it's gone.
This series of pictures of my middle son Brennan kicking a soccer ball into our friends' pool have been calling out to me to be used for the past 2 years.
I used Shona's Kroma Crackle BAP tutorial - if you've ever worked with Kroma Crackle you know it takes ages to dry; this technique cuts the drying time down considerably. I started by misting my background with some contrasting Lindy's Stamp Gang colors, and mixed Broken China Distress Paint into the Kroma - a little goes a long way (5% acrylic paint to 95% Kroma) and the color doesn't dilute - before applying it to my page. I laid it on thick to get the nice big cracks.
For some additional texture I used Simmerz Texturez in Patina and Teal Me No Lies and overlayed some of the mesh webbing from the kit right into the wet paint.
I also crumpled up the mesh to make dimensional clouds over Brennan's head.
The cute little Flying Unicorn Adornment butterfly was included in last month's Mid-Month Muse kit.
Another closeup of the gorgeous crackle.
FabScraps' Classic papers were perfect for this project - love them!
I colored all of my Flying Unicorn Adornments using Black Alcohol Ink to coordinate them with the papers.
Well, all 3 kids are up and looking for breakfast, so it's time for me to sign off. I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend - it's a long weekend here, hurrah!
