Unity’s 10th Birthday Celebration Blog Hop!

HAPPY Birthday! Wow—10 Years. Congratulations to everyone at Unity Stamp Company!

For this month’s hop, I’m sharing a 5-x-7-inch mixed media canvas I put together using the NEW Obsessed with Florals Background Kit created by Angie Blom with a sentiment from this month’s Kit of the Month.


QUICK PROCESS: First I applied some distress paint to the canvas and allowed time for it to dry. I stamped right onto printed tissue paper and adhered the stamped/printed tissue paper to the canvas with gel medium (allow time to dry). I framed the background stamp with some Faber-Castell Pitt Artist pens and filled it in here and there with distress ink and acrylic paint. I stamped the sentiment and fussy cut it, so that the format of the sentiment is how you see it on the canvas. Then I adhered a die cut heart and wrapped the canvas with some jute twine.

Here’s a peek at the kit.

Here’s a look—see at another canvas I created earlier this month. I believe this one is 8-x-10-inches.


The butterfly was a recent Unity freebie and the sentiment is from last month’s Layers of Life kit.

April 2018 Unity Stamp Company HOP!

Hey!
For this month’s hop, I’m sharing a 5-x-7-inch mixed media canvas I happily put together using the NEW Cuddlebug Platypus Kit that was created by Tierra Jackson.


Here’s a peek at the CUTEST kit.


When I was creating this, I was feeling a bit sassy and wanted that feeling to extend to my canvas. I wanted to accessorize and make things extra special. With this cute little image by Tierra, I decided to give it a little unexpected attitude using photo accessories I found online and then used them to photo-piece the platypus.

How do you like it?


Yay or Nay?

How do you get your feelings to transfer to your creations?


I also utilized this month’s Kit of the Month on my canvas, using the sentiment, background stamp, and bee. I thought it just went with the sass of my platypus. The rest of the background is a combination of acrylic paint with printed tissue paper.


Well, I hope I’ve inspired you to accessorize a Unity stamp once in a while and would love to see everyone’s take on it. I mean he’s just even cuter now because he’s MINE. 

I think I’m going to try and fold in some unique accessories for future projects. It’s unexpected and I’m quite looking forward to it.

March 2018 Unity Stamp Company HOP!

It’s almost Spring where I live and we’re experiencing very nice Spring’ish weather today—blue skies, fluffy white clouds, and mild temperatures. Later tonight, clouds will be rolling in and we’ll still be experiencing Spring weather, just the wet type tomorrow and through the rest of the week.
I LOVE rain. Let it RAIN!

For today’s hop, I’m sharing a chipboard tag I made using the latest AngieGIRL--Adella.

LOOK!
I’m a mermaid!


As most of you know, I like to use the AngieGirls as a paper doll canvas and insert my selfies in the blank space of their faces. THIS is my favorite crafting experience. It makes me giddy really.

Basically, you scan the stamped AngieGirl into photo editing software and insert the selfie into the blank face portion of the stamp. I usually make my selfie black and white and skew it a bit here and there to ensure a good fit in the stamped image. You know, so I look cute and stuff.

I paper-piece it with digital scrapbook papers and/or color it by various means of markers, pencils, etc., and then my Silhouette Cameo does the fussy cutting of the image and sentiment. Then I just LOVE to layer my tags and use dimensional dots to pop things up here and there.
My mini crafty room is like a playful carnival sometimes.

Here’s another view of my chipboard tag.

LOOK!
I’m a mermaid (again)!


Here’s a peek at the entire kit, Adella by Angie Blom:
