Jean and Warren - Challenge at Flying Unicorn

Oh yeah, we're having a blast at Flying Unicorn with Scrap-o-Ween.  Today's contest will really get ya going.  Check it out and see if you can guess what's in the cauldron!  But better hurry cause this contest is just for today.  If you don't make it over today, no worries, there will be a new contest with a prize every single day this month!!

I did this layout as inspriation for the Pursuit of Happiness challenge at Flying Unicorn.  The prize is the KOM, whoo hoo!  Go and check it out, there are other challenges too. 

So I've been playing in the molding paste and this is what I came up with. You ought to give it a try. Get some molding paste (available at M's or HL or any art store) and a palette knife. The molding paste I used was white and I added alcohol ink and liquid pearls to get this color - you can use acrylic paint too. Lay the mask down on your paper and use the palette knife to spread the paste over and just beyond the edges of the mask. Then carefully lift the mask and let it dry and it does take quite a while to dry. Its really quite easy and really fun, especially if you like to make a big mess like I do!

So my base paper is a piece of Bazzill CS that was not the right color so I sprayed it with Timberline and Snowy Pine Glimmer Mist. After that dried is when I applied to molding paste.
The pp is a mix of Bo Bunny Et Cetera (circle and photo mat) and the tage and dark scrap are Prima Printery. I made the flowers from the Et Cetera collection. The leaves are new Dusty Attic that I stained with Distress Antique linen and then highlighted with Bundled Twigs and Tea Dye. The other chippies are from the Et Cetera collection. The leaves behind the flower on the left are Prima Resist Canvas - cool stuff! Lace from my good friend Jen aka Jrabs.
The photo is of my dh's parents and their travel trailor. Photo was taken prior to 1950 as my FIL was killed in the Korean War in 1950. I really love this photo. My dh and I have a motorhome, we love to travel, my parents had a motorhome too, guess we know where we got that love from!
Thanks for stopping by!
