An altered album cover for 13arts.

Hello everyone :) I hope this post finds you well. 

While cleaning out my scrap space recently, I came across this long forgotten but yet SO beautiful canvad album from Donna Downey for Prima Marketing. I remembered buying it with SUCH excitement ages ago but sadly, it never made it to the top of the long list of projects to complete. 

But as soon as I dug it out, I knew I wanted to do something awesome with it using my ever SO LOVED 13arts supplies :) 

I know I say it with EVERY post but you REALLY should check out the 13arts online store HERE and a lot of 13arts products are also available at the Flying Unicorn HERE

Everything on this front cover is by 13arts, besides the album, the clock faces and the "Dream" embellishment. 


Here are some close ups and some details..
I started by painting the entire album with 13arts Matte Paint in Pistachio, before spraying some 13arts Yellow Amber Mist (MY FAVE!!!!) and letting it all drip down and across the page. 



I then added some 13arts Modelling Paste in random areas in the background and sprayed with Yellow Amber Mist as well as Yellow Lemon Mist

Before all that dried up I added some Gold Glitter strips/flakes also from 13arts, and allowed to dry . 

I covered one of the brand new Timeless Collection chipboard frames, title and cogs with 13arts Matte Paint in Sand colour and spraying some more Yellow Amber Mist on it. 

All the flowers you can see are from 13arts. They are all handmade and are simply one of my most favourite flowers I have ever used. 

The gold stem is also from the 13arts store.

Canvas * The Flying Unicorn January Kit Of The Month*

Hello there everyone. I am here today to share with you my last project created with The Flying Unicorn's January Kit Of The Month and add ons!

You will find The Flying Unicorn's online store HERE and The Flying Unicorn blog HERE

The Flying Unicorn is NOT a kit club - there are no sign ups - the kits are offered on a first come first serve basis- Scrapbooking should be a passion and not an obligation! So head on over to the store to get yours- once they are gone... they are gone!

"Follow Your Dreams" canvas 



One of the add on kits included this canvas and some 13arts Paints! I LOVE THEM! As you might know I am on their DT and am so familiar with these little pots of colour. They are waterbased so the minute you add some water they become really fluid and spread well. 

For the canvas here I applied a couple of thick coats and then used my fingers and some water to spread it out across and down the canvas. Before the colour had dried completely, I sprayed it with some more water to create a bit of a water colour effect .

Here are some close ups..
