And yellow is the woodland bough;
And every leaf of bush and weed
Is tipt with autumn’s pencil now.
And I do love the varied hue,
And I do love the browning plain;
And I do love each scene to view,
That’s mark’d with beauties of her reign.

Hi there !
Angelica here today to show you a LO that I have created with the Polish line Friday the 13th, and their playful and pasteltoned line "Jest pysznie. I immediately thought about doing a page about the Swedish phenomena "Fika" - when we drink coffe and 7 different sorts of coockies.
And now, when the September storms and the dark evenings, it´s the perfect season to sit in the sofa, snuggling in my favorite blanket and enjoying my fika. There´s a say" I can resist everything, but temptation" and for me that´s not an understatement, I love everything sweet :)
Gesso: Studio Gesso
From my stash: Purple flower from Manor house creation, two Prima flowers in teal, Lasercuts from Prima, Doilies and some old pieces of chipboard from Dusty Attic.

Today, I'm featuring Viva Decor's Ferro in Graphite, by showing you another great way to alter your chipboard, and get some awesome texture at the same time. Here's my layout.....
We're going to concentrate on the large chippy, on the left side. It was a much larger piece, which I've cut apart, and reassembled.
Paint or gesso your chipboard. I've lost those pics, so pretend you've seen this step!
Mist your chipboard with a light color. Let dry or heat set.
Add some Ferro, here and there on your chipboard.
Use your finger or a brush, to apply Glossy Accents, over some of the Ferro, as well as on the 'bare' chippy. But don't cover the whole piece.
Add your embossing powder.
Heat set your embossing powder. Don't worry about the bubbling effect....you want that!! Look at the texture you get!!
Mist with another color.
Add a bit more Ferro, over your chippy.
A couple of closeups......
So there you have it, another great way to add lots of texture to your chippies!! Do try this technique, you'll love the texture it creates!

Hi everyone! Shona here today with a little tag that I have created with some Friday the 13th, 100 % Collection, available in the Flying Unicorn store. These papers are so so different and they have so much background texture on them. FUN! For the background I have added 2 different masks with some Shimmerz Dazzlerz.
There is also all of these fun fussy cut pieces that you can add to your creations. That always makes creating so much easier to me. Finish it all off with some Prima flowers.
Before I go don’t forget to swing by the new Art Journal/ Mixed Media Challenge. I chose to do a layout but you can do what ever mix media inspired item you like to play along with us!
Today I want to share a few layoust I did showcasing some fabulous paper lines from Poland. Go Scraps, Color Hill and Friday the 13th. One of the things I love about Flying Unicorn, and there are many, is that Flying Unicorn specializes in papers not readily available in the U.S. All these collections are fabulous to work with. I could go on and on about the quality but you truly have to have these in hand to see for yourself.
The first LO I'm going to share is one I did of my grandson. I used Go Scraps "Street Art" papers for this LO. I started by fussy cutting some of the bricks out of the "BRICKS" Sheet, and I also used a Prima Crackle Mask, Bo bunny, Prima and Flying Unicorn metal flowers.
The next LO was made using Color Hill papers.I love the fun vibrant colors of this paper. I usually don't do bright lo's alot..but this paper makes it easy to do for me! I even made some of the flowers using some scraps of the paper.
The last LO I'm sharing today was made using Friday the 13th 100% collection. I loved that i didn't have to do too much as far as the bg goes because it was perfect for this photo! Again I used the Crackle Mask and Studio 490 Embossing Paste, and Prima Flowers
Thanks for stopping by Today! I hope you get a chance to head on over to the Flying Unicorn Store and grab some of these wonderful collections!

This line is called Refresh collection and It really inspires you to start playing, and I had tons of fun creating with them papers:)
So this is the layout:
I thought I should go with the kinda square- theme , thats going on in this line . So I cut the colored papers into squares in different shapes and sizes and did a lot of layering. Then I grabbed a mask with squares and started to build up the background. And misted and misted and splattered a lot!Misting and masking is soo fun!! I made three flowers out of white cardstock, and took an old white one from my stash, threw in some cheese cloth , and wood embellies too. Doodled around the letters, and a bit here and there on the page. The beautiful woman is my mother back in the sixties. I thought the photo was perfect to this paper line:)

Hope you enjoyed my post today, and SORRY again for the delay <3
Angelica here today to share my first tutorial(ever).I thougt that with Halloween just around the corner, it would be fun to show you how to do my favorite type of card, It´s a kind of "shadowbox" card with Halloween-theme, and so fun to make for all type of occasions. This card is for my grown-up DD, and since she loves both purple and G45, my obvious choice of papers was the Graphic 45 line The Magic of OZ. It´s a couple of years old,but I still love it! So here we go :)!
These are the papers that I´m going to use. And since I´m going to fuzzy cut I will use Ingwild Bolmes cutting tool and cutting mat. Other items needed will be presented along the way.
I always starts with deciding which images I´m gonna use, and roughly cut them out. I often do a simple sketch in advance, I find it easier to work that way.
Then I grab a couple of embellishments, that I think I´m going to use. Not all these flowers, obviously, but at this stage it´s hard to decide- they are all just sooo gorgeous. I have painted a scroll from Dusty Attic in black, and customized it a bit.The two mini images is for two tags that will dangle in a "spooky cluster" :) The hour hands is Tim Holtz, and the bling is Prima and Reprint.
Now it´s time to start constructing:) I use black cardstock which i cut in : (hope you excuse me for using centimeters:)
1pc 15 cm x 29,4 cm, this is the "book cover"
2pcs 16cm x 4cm
2pcs 14,5cm x 4cm
Then I score the cover 13,7cm from both edges. Then the back of the "book" will be 2cm
I also score all 4 stripes 1cm from each longside of the 4 stripes. They will be assembled to the "box walls"
Then I cut papers for the backside and the "back of the book", and glue them down.
Then I cut out a square on the frontside,as a "window", in this case 9,5cm x 9cm
Now the fun begins! From the precut papers I cut strips to create a frame around the cut out "window".And the two legs with striped socks, the witch face and hand,2 text borders and a purple semicircle, and glue them onto black carstock. Cut it out , leaving small black cardstock edge around the semicircle. This piece is to be on the top of the card(inside) so I have measured it so it will fit from each sides. I also adhere a couple of rhinestones, and the Dusty Attic lasercut.
Time to fold the "box". Fold the ends of the 4 stripes. Cut 1 cm in the folding on one of the sides of each one. Fold that side (like the side of a box)and glue it. Glue down the Witch piece on top, and a strip on the inside of the "book back". I have also written a spooky text and added to the bottom.
Now you have "the box walls" finished. I glue a black ribbon around to cover the edges. Time to do the background. I cut an image, fussy cut the whitch and the little gnomes(?), and draw a tree for them on black cardstock and cut it out.Now the gnomes are climbing arond in their tree:)
And here the walls and background is finished. The Witch has a thick layer of foam tape on her back. She is about to jump into the Emerald City anytime now.
And there she is!Wicked, Wicked! On the other side I have created a spooky mesh with some "amethysts" glimmering through it. And in the box there are some sparkling Ivy branches from Prima.
Now it´s time to finish the front. The second precut border, and a cut out compass with Tim Holtz clock hands adhered with a brad, glues on top. A couple of Ivy branches(Prima) and a black rose for decoration, And that´s about it...
...almost. There has to be a spooky bow with dangling bits and pieces on the back.Two minitags with an image on one side and a text on the other, some chinese coins with tiny amethyst pearls hanging from them, ribbons, tassels and tangling threads. Some Tim Holtz black soot on the edges, and it´s done!
Hope I have inspired to play along with me on this tutorial:)
