A Little Chic Fabulous .. Unity Blog Hop

Have I told you lately how much I LOVE Unity..
well just in case I haven't.. I am telling you now!!
Just take a look and you will know why..
CHIC Fabulous
this is a new kit being released today..
you get 2 large dress forms, one word, flower and leaf.. you can stamp them on a card..
use them on a layout, or do something even more
fabulous and stamp and apply them to canvas..
I inked these babies up on water colour paper.. then using my NeoColor crayons
I coloured them in with a fine tip paintbrush.. 
I then let dry and applied then on 6x6 thick canvases with gel medium.
( this is applying the gel medium on the canvas..
then the back of the water colour paper then on the front of the watered coloured art.)

here they are individually ...
I call this one LOVE.. my favourite word!!

Using modeling paste and the Christy Tomlinson's vintage lace mask I got a doily
effect for my background. then adding some random flowers from Petaloo and Pink Paislee
I used my Helmar 450 quick dry glue to adhere them on my canvas.. the LOVE background stamp
is Unity's Layers of Life { never ending story} kit. 

This one I called Fabulous...
Using the techniques as I did on the above canvas..
I love, love that you can do so many things with this kit..
They would make a great present for any girl.. or a fantastic decor item
for your home or office.

Unity Stamp Company Website.. sales always start at noon CST.

I heART Unity!! Just Sayin'

Every had one of those days when everything just goes perfect...
 Creative Bliss is what I call it..
Yesterday I had a day off work and wanted to make some cards for today's hop..
 well that changed into 4x4 canvas ART... more my passion ..
 I just LOVE these image I created for the May Kit of the MONTH..
 so beautiful for your canvases...
Here are the 2 Canvases I made..
Let the BEAUTY we LOVE be what we do... rumi
beautiful sentiment from this kit of the month.. paired with these Dalhia's  I designed.
the colour is so vibrant .. No it did not use water colours... I used my good copics to colour these..
I love how it just pops off the canvas.

It was stamped and coloured with copics and paper pieced and using gel medium  it was adhered onto the canvas.. that is why the image is so crisp. Using Textured Modeling Paste for defination..
and some Golden paint for the perfect blue background.

Then I could not stop at one.. so I made another.. same 4x4 size using the same copic technique
but the background is made with modeling paste and gelato's by Faber Castell... one of my favourite ways to add colour.. lots of drippage... I just love these dresses I created for the Kit of the Month..
I can't wait to hang this on my wall.  

Well this is the FABULOUS kit of the month for May 2014.. it is called

ANGIEgirl Release Day and More... Unity Stamp Co. HOP

Woo Hoo for Thursday.. I am so excited that we have a NEW Release of ANGIEgirls to share..
It has been a long time and we are celebrating by releasing 5 new girls.. 
 First , I want to introduce this little beauty..  It was just something I was doodling with and knew right away I wanted it to be a stamp..
 she is the "Faceless Beauty"..  and she has a gorgeous soul.. can you see it ?
 I just LOVE her..
She is fun to colour.. that is for sure..
I am sure you can have a ton of FUN using her in different designs..
Go to the Unity Stamp Company website to check her out!!
( sale goes live after 12 noon CST)
Now meet Ellie.. she is a hot beverage drinking, book loving girl.. I am sure we can all relate..
I gave her a more upbeat funky looking style.. so you can have fun with her wispy hair...
This was a hard girl to get just right but together with the Unity Team we made her come to life..

Then we have the beautiful Whitney Girl...
 she embraces her inner flower child.. Urban Hippie kind of girl.. and we just love her..
We love also that Nic Magnuson loved her so much and his beauty is a Whitney girl..
Let's just say it was meant to be... she even has the same hair style.. 
I so love the sentiments that go with her also..
She has been in my creative dreams for a long time and it is wonderful to see her finally here.

Next up is SHARI girl.. I wanted a girl with her favourite dog.. I named her after my beautiful sister Shari.. that has two wonderful dogs that are her fur babies... We had a fun time trying to get her outfit just perfect and these very trendy overalls that are going to be this summers big hit are perfect.
haha... glad I kept all my overalls from ummmm... 15 years ago..
 funny how everything makes it way back to fashion.

Next up is KIMMIE girl.. yes.. some days you just need that jolt of coffee to get yourself
going in the morning.. gosh.. in the middle of the day you need one.. or five..
What a fun way to give a friend or two a fun greeting and maybe an invite for a coffee date.
Kimmie would be a great addition to your ANGIEgirl collection.

So this is it.. woo hoo.. I hope these find a place in your collection or maybe you want to start your collection now.. I have now over 28 ANGIEgirls with Unity Stamp Company.. I am sure there are a few that would suit you perfectly.. or would make a great gift for someone special.

You Amaze Me ... Unity Blog HOP

Hello Unity Peeps.. Hope you are all doing well today... It has been along time but I got creative
this week and did a layout.. I really need to do more of these.. Using the April and March Layers of Life kits.. with this month's new Sentiment kit.. . I love how it all turned out.

I started off with a plain piece of very light pink card stock and randomly added the stamp images
layer one design on top of the other in coloured Inks from Memento. 
 Using the new "be inspired Challenge" colour combo with the addition of yellow and the Layout Sketch Challenge.
okay I cheated just a little with adding the yellow.. my bad.. haha 

Here is what the layout turned out to look like.. Also a perfect combination for these
"Lucky" Dear Lizzy Papers..
You can tell in  my layout how large that "You" is .. I sort of LOVE it.
Perfect for layouts and it comes with a ton of additional word sentiments.

Make sure you check out the Unity Website for all the wonderful promotions
 and savings for this week..

Unity Thursday! DIY inspired

Happy Thursday!!
I wanted to share a project I had on the Unity Blog for DT Tuesday..
I hope it get's you inspired to use those Layers of Life stamps in a different way.
I wanted to share a little project I made this weekend past.
. I took a canvas purse and turned it into a piece of ART using the LOL kit of the month.
I first started with a canvas handbag I got from our local Dollar Store ( where I work)
Then added a layer of gesso on the front . I did not do the back because I didn't want it rubbing on
my clothing.. Then I added my layer of blue acrylic paint and some painted flower details.

Then I added some sketched pen outlines and my stamp images for details in black achrival inks.
I let that dry and heat set the purse by just throwing it in th dryer for a couple of minutes.
I know this is way out of the box, but I do love it alot.. so original and fun for the summer.
It is amazing what you can do with these stamps to change it up.

remember to check out the Unity Website for all the sales and promotions.
