The Flying Unicorn - Mojo Monday Challenge for week of 5-18-2015



Happy Wednesday!  Today, I am sharing a layout for the Mojo Monday challenge at The Flying Unicorn blog.




Below is the sketch drawn by Alda, owner of The Flying Unicorn.  I tried using my photo box, moving the page every which place - but for some reason - could not get a decent photo.  The colors all around the edges are blue and the stenciling is paste mixed with a pretty blue acrylic paint.  IRL it is a combination of lovely blues.  I even used my new camera.

Below is a picture of the sketch by Alda.

  6. Sometimes it's so hard to get a layout to photograph right! Blue or not, this is stunning Kathy! I love the stenciled background and the eye-caching design.
