Mojo Monday *** Flying Unicorn ***

Flying Unicorn has a weekly sketch challenge, with a $10 gift certificate to the Flying Unicorn Store up for grabs to one lucky scrapper.  Tammy designed this week's beautiful sketch, and it was my pleasure to provide the inspiration layout for it.

The theme this past month at Flying Unicorn has been using up your stash.  Flying Unicorn prides itself on being one of a kind, and as far as I know we are the only online store/kit club who does not require you to use products purchased from our store to participate in our challenges.  In this vein, I dug deep into my stash and pulled out my precious 7 Dots Studio Wonderland papers.

The Wonderland papers have a lot of subtle texture built into them; I built on this texture by layering Ceramic Stucco, molding paste, cheesecloth, lace and drywall tape onto my background and then adding color directly onto the page with Lindy's Stamp Gang and Tattered Angels mists and Silks Acrylic Glazes and Luminarte Primary Elements.

The chipboard letters were treated with Aged Silver Embossing Enamel and a Prima script stamp was pushed into them while they were still warm, then they were lightly painted over with Luminarte Primary Elements in Mystique mixed with Acrylic Glaze.  The Gold Wired Beads in the clusters are a versatile trim, and can also be touched with paint to tie the layout together.

Have you tried painting your metal adornments and wooden accents?  The Flying Unicorn Adornment, Prima Engraver wood buttons and even the black and white Prima Breton vine were all painted with Luminarte Silks and Primary Elements to add some more color to the layout.  

You can play along with this beautiful sketch until 8pm EST on Sunday, June 9th.  Standard Flying Unicorn Rules apply.  You may use your stash, products do not have to have been purchased at the Flying Unicorn Store.

The winner of this week's challenge will receive:

Have fun and I can't wait to see what you create.
