Canvas Fun - Shimmerz, Creative Embellishments and the Flying Unicorn

Hi everyone! Today I am up on the Shimmerz and Creative Embellishments Blogs and I have a set of canvas's to share. I made them for my daughter for a house warming gift and it has special meaning to it…the old spoons are from my late mom. This canvas and lots of the embellishments came in my Flying Unicorn Feb kit. I used some crackle paste first and added all the embellishments. After that the fun begins.


The background is covered in many vintage pieces and some metals and resins from my Flying Unicorn Feb kit. I have added in Creative Embellishments Gears in both sizes through out the canvas.


I have used pieces from the Retro Square Panel in the background…I just love this panel it is so much fun!

Here you can see more of the Gears and the title pieces on both canvases’ are from the Dream Word Set! All of the chippys and canvas are finished with an assortment of Shimmerz products.

Here is the second canvas. I love the way the Shimmerz Tuscan Sun, Chick a dee, Terra Cotta and Bamboo Leaf Spritz’s just seeped into all the cracks. That is my background. I heat set between colors. I love the antique door handle I added to the top.

For finishing touches I have added some of the NEW gorgeous Creameez in Great Fruit and Get Glowing to some of the Flying Unicorn metal embellishments. The new Shimmerz Creameez is darker colors than Inkligz and are much creamier when water is added to activate them. I also added touches of Inkligz in Im Not Limon and Sun Kissed with little splats of Brass Knuckles in the end.

I adore the new chippy word pieces from Creative Embellishments

And lastly here is a photo of the set. I hope my daughter enjoys them and they add some fun and color to her kitchen.


Take care and happy Scrapping!
