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.

This bag is awesome. I don't know if you know the "Desigual" line of clothing, If not, go take a peek. Your bag would fit right into their line and looks better than most of the bags they have (imho.
