Welcome to my funky side!

Yesterday I showed you my favorite creations with the January KOM from the Flying Unicorn.  Today I want to share with you my funky side!  The kit addons have so many great mixed media products that I was inspired to just play with all my paints, masks and stamps.

This first layout is a photo that I have extended by using 13 Arts Ayeeda paints that came in the Mixed Passion add on along with Viva Maya Gold paints in my stash.  The drywall tape under the title is included in the kit.  All the black swirls were cut with my Cameo, WOW I am impressed with what a great job it does cutting fine details!  So I dabbed a little paint here and there, added some stamping, just playing, but what fun!  And that really is what it's all about right?  Sometimes when I sit down to do a piece, I am always thinking that this has to look perfect as I am showing off our kit but you know the new kit format has inspired me to get out of my comfort zone and play and so I am sharing my playful experiments with you!

Supplies - from the January kit and addons unless otherwise noted:
Patterned paper:  Prima Jodie Lee Art Journal paper
Diecuts and punches: Alterations Artful Words, (from my stash)
Flowers:   Prima Audrey571597, Petaloo Textured collection Mixed blossoms Apricot, Petaloo Penny Lane Antique Peach (from my stash)
Ink:  Mix'd Media Inx chiffon, peridot, Range black archival ink (all from my stash)
 Mist:  Shimmerzing Goldie Lox (from a prior kit)
Paint:    Viva Maya Gold Olive, Cacoa, Fire red (from my stash), 13 Arts Matte Lemon & matte Pink
 Other:  Stamper's Anonymous Ultimate Grunge stamp  (from my stash)

Love the January OTP, a Prima Finnabair art journal.  I fussy cut an image from G45's Couture papers and modpodged it over laces from the January kit.  The flowers are also from the kit.  I did some masking underneath it all and added lots of Glimmer Glam and more mists.    Truthfully, I am not wild about this but that's ok, that's what an art journal is for - experiment, play, have fun, if it turns out great, then that is a bonus.  Ok no bonus for me this time!

The Small Art, Big Passion add on is a fun kit and includes 12 sheets of Prima's Finnabair's Art Journaling paper.

This is a gift card holder tag I made for my brother's iTunes gift card.  I did some masking with several different masks and some misting.  I really love the music note that is part of the Flying Unicorn adornments as is the flower.  I  used some embossing powder on the flower as well as some paint, just to jazz it up!

Thanks for stopping by!
