Creating with the Flying Unicorn Sept KOM, 50 Shades of Summer

 The September kit features 13@rts Faces of Spring, Kaisercraft True Romance, and Melissa Francis Classic Elegance Collection.

For this first layout I used papers from all three collections.  I did a lot of masking in the background with triangles  and mini paint lids mask.  After I completed my layout I used the pink ink pad in the kit to add pink highlights to my masking and then used foam stamps to  stamp circles ramdonly on the layout.

These paper flowers are one of my favorite embellishments in the kit.  They are diecut paper layers so you can layer them together.  They are so delicately colored and so feminine.

 This is a fun layout with a photo from the very early 1900's of a couple of dance hall gals in Dawson City, YT, the site of the famed Klondike Gold Rush. 

I used a lot of Flying Unicorn adornments to embellish this layout.  I added some embossing enamel to the adornments, I love how it looks on the metal.
