Unity + Petaloo ... team up Unity Thursday!!

Happy Thursday everyone.. I wanted to share my project that was on the Unity Blog this past
Tuesday..  make sure you check out the Unity BLOG for all this weeks promotions..

you will see the awesome stamps that we will have availible to you today as itty bittys...
  go grab yours on the Website..
 
 
here is my project.

Using one of the Past SMAK kits , I made this fun layout..
It was out time last fall down in Connecticut , where I was teaching at CKU
one of or stops was a trip to the Target there.. and I captured these kiddos
having a treat in the store.. Starbucks.. who can turn that down!!
Using the Past SMAK kit of the Month " love story clips"
this is the December 2012 SMAK kit..
I just love all the elements of this kit and that clip board had me all excited to
use it in a fun way to hang a photo.


For this layout I wanted a distressed look for my layered flower.
Using Flowers from Petaloo's Color Me Crazy collection...


I first took a variety of flowers to layer.. from large to small.. then sprayed them all with
Heidi Swapp's Color Shine.. then let those dry.


Then using the stamp from the April 2013 SMAK kit
"Celebrate the Good Times"
and some brown ink I stamped on the flowers.
then for the distressing I lightly splattered some
Bronze color shine .
the last thing I did was let the flower dry completely and used my fingers to form the shape
to make them more 3-D .. I love the look . I love that the stamping added another element to
what would just be a plain flower..




Again, we'll be sharing ideas using Unity Stamps & Petaloo all week long...
