Unicorn Magic

Happy FriYAY! 

Time for a new 3D project, and I am very excited to show you my creation this week. If you are visiting for the first time, welcome! If you are returning HEY Crafty Peep glad to have you  back! For those that are new, my crafty friend Michelle (her project is adorable) and I have challenged ourselves to create three times a week and blog about it. You can find ALL of our challenges here: 'Two Girls and Blog Challenge' . Don't forget you will also want to hop on over to Michelle's blog and check out her 3D creation this week. 


Almost a month ago, Close to My Heart posted on their blog a beautiful wall decor using images manipulated from the Flower Market Cricut cartridge. It was this beautiful unicorn design, you can read the full post here. What was special about this project, is Close To my Heart provided the unique design space link, where the images were already done for you. Listen - you can still do this without a cricut - because CTMH is amazing click here to download a PDF you can use to hand cut your own petals etc. 

Now, this link has the images sized to create a HUGE wall decor, the largest flower is 20 inches...We have textured walls and they are not friendly to have wall decor adhere to them. I decided to resize the images to fit a 10 x 13 space. While at a big box store, I found this wood sign, however it was weathered barn siding color (dark greys and browns), well unicorns are typically white, right! So to create a white wash look, I mixed an off white and white acrylic paint together, and sponged it to the board. Once dry, I sanded the board down and it was ready for my decor. 

My flowers, ears and foliage are cut from CTMH cardstock, the horn and centers to the flowers are cut from CTMH gold foil paper, the beautiful eyelashes and settiment are cut from CTMH Black glitter paper. 


Here is a side few, so you can see the shimmer from the Gold Foil paper and Black Glitter Paper.


Are you ready to make yours? If you have the Flower Market Cricut collection, all you have to do is click the cricut link at the top of this post, or the PDF to hand cut your own. Need the Flower Market Cricut collection? No worries, you can snag it from my official cricut affiliate link here
