More kit creations with the June Flying Unicorn kit.

This kit has so many soft and sweet elements in it and the paper is certainly dreamy and romantic, but wait, you can get wild with it too!

Here's my Walk on the Wild Side!  The photograph is one that I took of a pond near Chicken, Alaska in the campground where we were staying.  There were forest fires everywhere which is why this shot looks so hazy.  The sun was peeking through the haze and is reflected in the water.

I used Pink Paislee's Hope Chest Treasures paper for my base and then loaded on the Lindy's.  I wanted to continue with the colors of tire on my layout.  I used TCW's reverse chicken wire for some masking and also mini paint lids to mask the background.  I used a great new product in the store, Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi black embossing paste.  I love this stuff, it goes on so smooth!  Best thing is that it comes in gold, silver, black and white.  The circle behind the photo is embossed with the gold using TCW mini microbial.  The two squares behind the photo are also embossed with the gold paste and TCW's mini tile mask.  I seriously love the gold paste, it is so pretty and shiny!!  Look at one of the closeups of the 2nd layout for a really good shot of the gold embossing paste.  On this layout there is mist on top of the paste so it doesn't shine as much as it would "naked".

Here's a layout I did with the softer sweet feminine part of the kit.  This is our niece with her wedding party.  The two branches extending from under the photo are embossed with Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi gold embossing paste.  The large flower, Prima Tatiana, and the chippies from my stash.
Here's a closeup of the Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi gold embossing paste, isn't it pretty?  I love how it shines!
