Reveal - Flying Unicorn January kit - Wishing and Hoping

I am so happy that I can finally show you the January KOM from Flying Unicorn.  Its filled with papers from one of my favorite manufacturers, the Graphic 45 Tropical Travelogue collection.  The colors are so bright and cheerful, love the tropical imagery, perfect for the cold winter blues!  Click here to purchase and learn more about the kit.  But do hurry, they sell out fast.

Here's another from the kit. Photo is my mother when she was about 16. Lots of fussy cutting going on here, all those leaves are fussy cut from the Rain Forest pp. I made the flowers (with stuff from my stash) using a McGill Floriana punch and cut them from Tim Holtz glassine paper. Then I brushed gold Perfect Pearls on the flowers and heated with my heat gun. The heating sets the Perfect Pearls, really a neat effect. On the right under the flowers is a Petaloo rose leaf spray from mystash. The black pearl swirls are a Prima SIIP that I cut apart, also from my stash, Flying Unicorn has some great bling swirls from ZVA in the store!

This might be my favorite LO that I did using this kit.  This is a photo of my Mom taken back in the 40's, probably 1944. I love the netting that came in the kit this month and chose to use that to represent the sea along with the blue papers. You can see some fish swimming around up there! I fussy cut some flowers from the Garden Isle pp, the frame is Seaside Holiday, stripes Tropical Travelogue, fish Oceania. The 3D flower is from my stash and is from ZVA. Behine the photo I've used Lindy's Stampgang fusible webbing (here's a tute that my good scrapping buddy Joyce did)  and used two different colors of embossing powder, its representative of seaweed and then I added some silver microbeads indicative of bubbles you see in the water. Oh you can't really see it, but there is a pearl in the upturned shell. TFL!

The January kit also contains a really fun Off the Page Project - glass painting.  The kit includes 3 glass bottles, a glass plate, candles and glass paint to really get your creative mind working.  Here's what I came up with.
