You Are My Sunshine

Hi everyone!

A new month means lots of new fun at Flying Unicorn and I'm up for hosting a new challenge for June! I am ready to kick off summer with a bright fun layout!

For my "You Are My Sunshine" Challenge you must use yellow as your main color. Here is my example. This layout has a little inspiration from a creation made by Jacqueline Moore. This photo is one of my favorites of me and one of my grandsons. He just turned 2 and he is such a joy! He fills our hearts with sunshine!

I used Maja Design paper  and Prima and Petaloo Flowers.

I started with some 13 arts Gesso and Prima stencil on the background. I then used 13 Arts mists in yellow and 13 arts Water Ink in Pink.

Now for the rules!

1. Layouts main color must be yellow. You can use other colors too, but yellow must be primary
2. Your photo must be of someone who is a sunshine in your life!
3. You must tell us who/why the person is in your photo.

13 Arts

Hi all!

Just sharing a layout I created using some 13 Arts goodies. I used 13 Arts paper, Mists and Splash Water Ink from previous Flying Unicorn kits.

I made this for our Mixed Media Challenge in the Forum. Swing on by and join us!!

I started by using the Prima Crackle stencil with some 13 Arts Gesso. Then I misted using Indigo 13 Arts Mist and a little bit of Shimmerz Jeni B Blue.
I used Splash Water ink from 13 arts in Turquoise and Black to splatter around. The stamps are Bo Bunny and Kaisercraft. The chipboard frame is from Creative Embellishments

Hope you get creative this week!
