Hello! I have a couple of Flying Unicorn CT projects I would like to share with you today. My daughter Chandler is graduating tomorrow so I thought I would make her a mini-album to document her day. She really loves vintage, tattered, weathered old things and books. I focused on trying to make this look authentic and still be functional. I kept the inside of the album pretty simple, so that she can make a few notes and has room for a couple of nice sized photos.
 As you can see, I piled on the Flying Unicorn Adornments to get this layered mechanical look. I also used a lot of Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays on the cover and binding that were from the May Kit of the Month. I couldn't resist adding some flowers here and there.
 Inside the book I used mostly older papers from Bo Bunny Weekend Market. Any vintage papers will work. I added a pocket to a couple of pages and placed a bunch of journaling tags inside.
I kept to a basic format, allowing room for a larger photo on at least one page. 
 Here are the last two pages.
 ...and the back.
 This is how it looks lying flat. I made the binding with a "handle" so that it can be hung on the wall.
My next project was a small canvas that was in the May kit. Again I messed around with the sprays over stenciled texture paste and embossing. I really had fun just creating on the canvas - no rules.
 Here is a little closer look at all the built up spray - I just love how it all gathers in the crevices and adds so much dimension.
Thank you for letting me share with you today and I hope you will be inspired and encouraged to create something beautiful!!!
