Find Peace Within Yourself- Flying Unicorn June KOTM

Welcome to another month with Flying Unicorn. This month's kit is sensational featuring papers from Ridderlsholm Designs from Denmark.

As soon as I saw the leaf looking metal piece in my kit I imagined a Buddah figure with that metal piece as his head gear and that's exactly what I did, I created a Mixed Media Canvas with a Buddah image on it using some products from the Mixed Art kit add-on

I printed an image of a Buddha face and used matte gel medium to adhere it to the background. I inked it with brown fluid chalk ink and coloured the the lips and eyes with gold Shimmerz.

Below you see the gold metal piece I used as a head decoration. Its the one that inspired me to create this project. I also cut small metal leaves to create the hair.

I used one of the Tailgate Riddersholm papers with a wood grain pattern as the background for the papers.

I used the resin circles from the kit as earrings.

I used some Prima flowers and other metal pieces to decorate around the Buddah's face and neck.

Papers: Rhiddelshom Tailgate
Flowers: Prima
Metal embellishments: Flying Unicorn
Ranger crackle paint
Shimmerz Gold paint
Prima fluid chalk ink: branch bark
pearls: unknown
resin: Petaloo

I hope you enjoy yourself today and find peace within yourself!!
