Here is my first layout from the Flying Unicorn September kit - 50 Shades of Summer. The picture is of my beautiful sister, Emily, myself, Elliot (as a baby) and Evan at my sister's wedding on the Mayan Riviera in 2008.
For the background I used Shimmerz Texturez through two different stencils, and outlined in watercolor pencil to bring the image forward a little. I then stamped the background with circles using Picket Fence Distress Paint - I love the "ghostly" image it creates; more subtle than if I had used gesso.
The central strip on the layout is actually printed self-adhesive canvas from the Embellishment Add-On - I pulled threads off of all of the edges for a distressed look.
The Prima Merci flowers from the Flower Add-On are new favorites of mine. I tucked in the pieces of thread I'd pulled off the fabric sheet in amongst my clusters to bulk them up a little.
