Layered Unicorn Wall Decor





The March Anything Goes crafting challenge
at the
is now live !

This month the theme is to add some layers.

Our generous sponsors for this challenge are

I used the 
image from A Day For Daisies for my piece. 








I printed the digital image at regular size 
onto white card stock.
It fits nicely into a 6 x 6 frame.

The eye was colored with a marker
and the background was water colored.

The horn has Stickles diamond glitter glue on it
and the ribbons were colored with a silver metallic marker.

I then printed the image two more times 
onto a shimmery white paper,
trimming out the mane portion of each.

The mane is attached with dimensionals and glue
to create dimension.

I made my own very tiny flowers.
The pink "roses" are made from pre-made
five petal paper flowers that I trimmed, scrunched
and glued into place to replicate a rose.
I used a darker color for the base,
lighter for the top layer. 

The tiny yellow flowers were made with paper punches
and have rhinestone accents.

I hand cut teeny little leaves from green card stock

and added detail with a green marker. 

All pieces were carefully glued together with a 
clear drying liquid tacky glue. 
I squeezed a small puddle of the glue onto scrap paper
then used a toothpick to dab very small amounts
of the glue onto each piece.

These flowers are no larger than the end of a pencil,
very small and tricky at times to create !











(instructions for the hand stamped clock can be found on this blog post:  https://craftysahmiam.blogspot.com/2016/09/stamped-clock.html )

I was going to chalk / distress paint my frame , 
but decided in the end to keep it black,
thinking the image would pop more
