Two Beautiful Sweetheart Layout

Hi Everyone, Here's a look at my latest layout. I used some of the wonderful items I received in my Flying Unicorn kit of the month for July. What a delight this kit was with the tons of yummy goodies including scrapbook papers with my favorite color palette.... Pink, Black, Gray and Cream...Oh My!

And if that wasn't enough there was even more to this kit. Check out what I did with these goodies. The boat was really fun to play around with and I added it to my second project....the Friend-Ship. There is so much to this kit that I will be making many more things with it.
There's more pictures and the story behind the Friend-Ship layout/project on my previous post.

Check out the Flying Unicorn kits.....

ALSO I'm so excited to say the Flying Unicorn featured my layout on Facebook...SWEETTTTT!!!

Thanks for peeking in on me,
Hugs, Laurie

The Friend-Ship

Here's a look at a very special layout of a very special friend, my BFF Melissa. This layout was created with a kit from the Flying Unicorn's Kit of The Month for July 2014. What fun creating a scene with the row boat that came with the kit!
I started with the unfinished row boat. I knew I wanted it to look as though it had been sitting on the beach for a longtime. Still seaworthy and holding up, like the friendship I share with Melissa.
With a little paint and sand paper I achieved the look I was going for. I also took an unfinished wooden round ring and made a Life-preserver with the words "This Life Is Good" on it. You know our friends are the Life-preservers that keep us a float.... I know mine do.
I then took a 9"x12" flat canvas and a 12"x12"x 1'' canvas to create a base and back drop. With crumbled up brown paper, white paint and real sand added, the base was ready.

Next came the fun part adding all the embellishments. Beads, a fence, the boat, a few star fish and sand dollars like the ones Melissa and I collected that day on the beach.
               Great memories!  Good Times!
Now for the canvas layout. With texture, paper, paint and some sand the layout was ready to tell the story of the great friendship that we share and the adventures we go on. The small words under the title say it all.... Our Friendship Make Me Happy Everyday! Thank you Melissa for that.

Thank you all for stopping by. Please become a follower. Also check out the Flying Unicorn for great ideas and kits.
Thanks, Laurie Moore
