Baby Belly **CT Flying Unicorn**


Hi everyone and welcome to my blog. I wanted to post this before I left to be with my daughter for a week. She is in labour as I type this and this baby will be here tonite or in the morning...so very exciting.  OK so today I have a layout that I have created using papers from Teresa Collins Sweet Afternoon Collection, Stampendous Embossing Enamel and some Dusty Attic chippys…all from the Flying Unicorn store. The more I use these papers the more I am loving them. They are thick and I love the texture of them. I also got inspiration from the current challenge at Once Upon a Sketch. The photo is my daughter just a couple of weeks ago. There is hidden journaling on the tag with the ribbon.


I have done some background masking with gesso for a soft effect. I fussy cut some of the flowers from the collection papers and tucked them in here and there. For the Dusty Attic Skeleton clock I have painted it with gesso and than sprinkled it with diamond dust while it was wet. The other chippy I painted white and I added some Stampendous Embossing Enamel and used a heat tool to set it. I love the gold flecks in this enamel…yummy.

The flowers are all from Green Tara, I have also used some Green Tara lace and trims to finish this layout off.

One last close up you can see the gorgeous pink cobweb trim and lace from GreenTara.

Well that is it for today. Don’t forget to stop by the Flying Unicorn store for all your scrappy needs…Alda has been loading so many new goodies in the store.  Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
