Flying Unicorn July KOM Creations!

One of the greatest things about our Flying Unicorn kits is that they always include an off the page project and each month the project is different of course!  We've had everything from canvas to glass painting.  This month our OTP was a nesting set of 3 wooden trays and a set of oil paints to paint them with and decoupage paste.   I decided to use my trays as frames so that I could create a 3-D project.  Here's a sign for my garden.  First I painted the tray in the style of Monet, that is dabbing paint on - that created a textured finish.  I used blue, green, yellow and white and a touch of brown to color my tray.  Oil paints do take a while to dry and as thick as I had applied the paint, it took a good 48 hours to dry.  Then I applied a coat of decoupage paste over the paint to keep it from chipping off.

The letters are Kaisercraft and I painted them with Luminarte painte, I really love Luminarte paints, they have such deep jewel colors.  Thank you Patti for introducing me to these paints.  I used blue Petaloo flowering vines and a couple Prima roses to embellish the english ivy vines that came from Hobby Lobby.  Its really a simple project but it looks really pretty introducing you to my garden.

This 2nd frame I painted with acrylic paint and lined the bottom with paper.  I used a couple Dusty Attic corner pieces that I painted with gold Perfect Pearls and again used Petaloo flowering vines (I love these vines!!  Watch for them in the Flying Unicorn store)  and 2 large Prima blooms.  This is a simple design but I know my MIL will love it!

And finally I'd like to show you a LO that I did with the kit using some Fabscraps and Manor House flowers.  The vine is Petaloo. I used WRMK Lucky 8 to cut the purple cardstock piece and Martha Stewart Deco Flower corner punch to punch the white circle.
