I have to admit that Flying Unicorn has the most unique and creative OTP projects. I knew we were getting a mailbox and had a dream about it. I knew exactly what I was going to do before it even came. Metal, metal and more metal.
Here is the process: (lots of pictures)
So now the pretty pictures. I am still trying to figure out the camera and I took pictures both inside and out. I have better lighting with outside.
I covered up the face of the pocket watch with some tape while I sprayed.
You can see the texture paste close up here. Still a learning curve with that.
My little packages I made, and some home made envelopes that Sigita Grunte posed on FB. They were so cute I had to try my hand at them.
I used some goodies from the December kit to add to the effect.
I wanted to do something a little different seeing I thought there would be a fair number of Christmas themed mailboxes. I need to give it to my awesome mail lady Janice who puts up with my deliveries and my kids always breaking into her jaw breaker stash in her mail truck.
Thank you for stopping by today.

It’s great. Did you use everything from the Flying Unicorn kit on this? I was thinking of joining the KOM but still have reservations. Need to make sure the kit is worth what i’m paying for it.
Thank you Tammy for your warm comments. I Used a lot from the Kit. But most of the product you can get in the store. Very creative kits always something new.
