Dreams of Flying - Flying Unicorn KOM

Have you had a chance to check out the April Flying Unicorn kit of the month? I have to say, hands down, this is one of my favourite kits of all time! It contains the amazing Cold Country papers from 7 Dots Studio.

My first layout for the month is based off this week's Mojo Monday sketch on the Flying Unicorn Forums. Come play along for your chance to win a gift certificate to the Flying Unicorn Store.

These papers are perfect for purple - one of my favourite, and yet underused, colours. I painted and dripped two colours of Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays, and added in a bit of pink with a Prima Chalk Edger.

I wanted a steampunk/grunge feeling to the layout, so I brought in lots of brown using instant coffee. I also used the coffee to stain the butterfly stamps and the letters in my title.

There's an old Barenaked Ladies song written as though the singer is speaking to his young son, and he asks "When you dream, what do you dream about?" I love watching my boys sleep, and the sweet picture of my youngest sleeping was just too sweet not to scrap.

The ball chain is included in the Mixed Passion kit, and I thought it would make a great frame to showcase the photo. And I couldn't resist adding the Prima goggles to his head.

If you haven't had a chance to check out the April kit, best do it quickly! I have a feeling this one really isn't going to last.

And here is the Mojo Monday sketch if you'd like to play along.
