Present for a Dear friend

Today I am posting some pictures that were for a Christmas gift for a dear friend. All the members of the Creative team of Flying Unicorn were asked to create a 6" X 6" ....2 sided layout to thank Alda, the founder of the Flying Unicorn. These pages were then all assembled and given to Alda as a mini album. It was a wonderful way to say "thank you" and also for her to have a creative memory of all her designers. That being said, today is my last day on the Flying Unicorn Creative team. It has been an honor and a pleasure to create along with this talented group. I will certainly be checking in on the Flying Unicorn social group, but now as a friend and general member.

To make this piece I started with layering Pion paper that I found at the Flying Unicorn store, of course. After fussy cutting the butterflies, I watercolored them in pastel colors and added matching Stickles. Some flowers, clear clock faces, rhinestones, stamped sentiment and a pretty female image completed this side.

For the back it was the same layered Pion paper but also an ATC frame insert painted with crackle paint. I added a few cut out words that had meaning to me. On this I added the same details that I used on the front but there is also a pocket with a special message to Alda too.

Hope you have someone to be thankful for,
artfully yours, gerri

"You are a dear."
