I Miss *CT Flying Unicorn*

Hi everyone and happy Sunday, wow this weekend has gone by WAY too fast! Today I have a layout that I have made using the sketch and journal format from Once Upon a Sketch. I have also used the gorgeous new Maja Design papers and lots of Dusty Attic available at the Flying Unicorn store. I did lots of distressing, masking with gesso, stamping, misting and machine stitching on this layout. The photo is 4 of my grandkids and “I Miss” having them live close enough to me that we can visit when ever we want to.


Most of the flowers are from Manor House and they are also available in the store. I tucked in some bloomers, twine hearts and a Prima resin piece. The Dusty Attic leaves are just painted white and then misted with olive mist while still wet.

The Dusty Attic border scroll is first painted with black crackle paint then while it was still wet I dabbed on some perfect pearls powder.

One more close up.

Well that is it for today! I hope that you all have a fantastic week! Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
