Playdate Thursday with the Flying Unicorn - Mixed Media Journal pages.


Hi everyone! It is Playdate Thursday at the Flying Unicorn and I have some journal pages to share with you. Journals are perfect for practicing new techniques that you see. I want to demonstrate layers on a journal page. I love layers! Layers with pretty papers, mists and paints, stamping and of course masking. I have started with my Finnabair Mixed Mediajournal and some Prima Vintage Vanity Paper Pad sheets. One sheet cut in half for the background and two torn pieces from another sheet on the insides. Adhere to your journal.
 


I added some pieces of Washi tape from previous kits.

 
Next I brought out a Prima mask and some Golden Moldingpaste.

 
Add some Shimmerz Mists and heat set. The layers are coming along nicely!
 

Lets add more Masking with a 13ARTS mask and some Golden Molding paste.
 

Another fabulous layer to add is stamping…use some various stamps on your project. Here I added the photo and some May Arts Trims. I love the new Paper Cord and the Mini Rafia bows on wired string…so much fun to play with and they come in so many yummy colors!

 
One of my final layers is to add some CreativeEmbellishments chipboard pieces. The Flying Unicorn store has a fabulous variety to chose from and the price is amazing on these chippys!
 

Here are my finished Journal pages and a couple of close ups. My final layer was to add a few trinkets, touches of gesso and some Shimmerz splats. Have a great week everyone!
