The Flying Unicorn is having a SCRAP*O*WEEN.  My oh my!  Prizes Galore!  Daily games!  Weekly challenges!  Month long challenge!  PRIZES  Did I mention there are prizes?  Join the Flying Unicorn Forum and have some fun!---all month long!

As you know by now I'm on the Product Creative Team at the Flying Unicorn.  I'm hosting one of the Scrap*o*ween weekly challenges.  My challenge is this week and runs ONLY UNTIL OCTOBER 8th  So don't be tardy to the party!

My example: originally I was going to make this beautiful vintage canvas with some gauze and lace all painted and glued in with a stunning image of a mother and daughter. But this is what I ended up with in my art journey:
Here is the challenge:
Any art form--layout, card, hangy thingy, etc.
Theme: mothers or mummies. You can make something for Halloween or NOT.
Twist: must include somewhere on project, visible to the naked eye, GAUZE.

(For my gauze twist, I chose to make a flower.)

Products I used from the Flying Unicorn on-line store:
Pink Paislee Phantom House of 3: papers---Mystic (green), Haunted (31 playing card cut out), brad (gauze flower center)
FrancyPants Designs: paper: Oct. 31-Cards (good little witch words and hat which I cut up); Glitter Cuts (the frame for my mom)
Graphic 45 Magic of Oz paper (Good Witch card)
If you like these products and want some, they're on sale this month:

Other Products:
