Growing In Unity Day Four


Welcome To Day Four of Growing In Unity.

Today I have something different for you all. I've never tried mixed media art on a burlap canvas. I had been wanting to try stamping on burlap. I started out by stamping the large hearts from Unity Stamp Co. Everything Love {January 2014 sentiment kit} using StazOn solvent ink. This ink will stay bold and will not smear if used with water or any medium. I used some modeling paste to give my hearts on the lower bottom a little texture. I really love that I have some texture and that the burlap can still show up. I started coloring in my heats using Faber-Castell  Red Cherry and Gold Champagne Gelatos. Can I just say I love gelatos. these went on with a rustic look but with a little water it was easy to spread. I went around the edge of my canvas using the gold. I thought a little sparkle would help. For my sentiment and wooden hearts I used the same color gelatos using water to left up the colors till I got the textured I need on the heats and sentiment. I really love how the sentiment have a wood grain look. I stubble upon this look by first take the gelato to the edge of my card. I spread the red and went back and add the gold on top since it has more of a clear layer.  I later went in with a LePen permanent pen which is an alcohol-based ink to trace my hearts.  I love how this turned out!!

Growing In Unity Day Three




Hello Crafty Peeps and Welcome to day three of Growing In Unity.

Today I wanted to share another card. Lately I've been trying my hands at water coloring and manly because I got the new seasonal distress markers. I just love Tim Holtz he's an amazing artist. I created this card below using Unity Stamp Co. Layers of Life Kit: fly unique april 2014. I started out by dry embossing my background with an embossing folder. I used my distress ink pads: picked raspberry and mowed lawn  to create a mixed colored background. I stamped my butterfly first using versafine ink. I find this ink gives me better coverage when working with water paper. I being to work on my background by stamp both distress colors on two separate stamp blocks so I could have more control over how much color I wanted. I just rub the paper on each block till I got the look I wanted.
I finished my card off with a little bling.


I hope you all have been enjoying your week with me. 
I can't believe I only have two days left. Time is flying.

Growing In Unity Day Two



Good Morning My Creative Friends
Welcome to day Two of Growing In Unity.

Today I want to share a Project Life Card. I'm just starting out with PL and one of my favorite things to do is make my own PL cards using the tones of stamps I own. You can see my very first set of Unity Cards I made HERE. Today I'm using Unity Stamp Co. {bowl-full of comfort} stamp set. When I seen this stamp set at Unity I just knew I had to have it. And as I set in my craftroom I wonder what should I do. I didn't want to share another card I had shared that already. So I went through my photos for this year and found this picture of a soup I made for the first time. Now this was so yummy that both my girls asked for seconds. Now I wish I had remember the recipe because they keep asking for it. So yesterday I picked up some of the ingredients I thought I used just so I could try and remake it.
Wish me luck!!

 Enough talk HEREs my creation:
 I stamped my image on water colored paper and using my season distress markers to color it in. To give each bowl that ceramic look I used glossy accent. For the sentiment I did some masking. Instead of saying sending comfort by the bowl-ful I wanted it to say comfort by the bowl-full. And it turned out perfect.

Okay here's a closer look at my PL page for today. Where you see my 4x6 pocket it lift up so you can see the recipe. I haven't add the the ingredients or recipe yet because I'm recreating this dish today for dinner. Once I've master it I will go and add all the instruction and ingredients. By the way to get the glare off your pages when taking pictures try to scan your page. I hope to get a better picture when the sun is around. As you can see in both picture the pink color is off a lot. So I hope to have a better picture.

Growing In Unity Day One


Hello Crafty Friends,
 Happy Monday and Welcome To Day One of  Unity Stamp Co. Growing In Unity. I'm super excited to share my Unity Stamp creations. How was your Easter? Over all I had a great Easter. 

Okay I wanted to create a one layer card using this cute candle stamp. I  got this candle stamp set in a grab bag. I'm not sure if this one stamp is in a kit or not. I love the cute polka dots add to this stamp. I used my glitter pen on the candle and the flames. And colored each image in with my sharpies. I stamped this cute sentiment from Unity  ...birthday jubilee which is from the July unity sentiment kit from 2013 and I add below the candles to help bring the eye to the sentiment.  

Okay enough talk HEREs my card.

Pinque Peacock: Altred Box

Good Morning Crafty Friends!!
 Welcome To Another Pinque Peacock Post.

 As always I love seeing how well Pinque Peacock products pare up with other products and on altered creations.  I really have been enjoying my altered creations and we all know how amazing the stick pins, buttons, and flowers look on all creations.  Anyway today I'm sharing this altered box. This box had a cute little coffee mug and coaster in it. I really like the pattern papers. And this box is so sturdy. I thought it would be nice to embellish my box. I used Pinque Peacock Pearl Beaded Stick Pin  which you can find HERE. I love the colors Jessica used on this stick pin. I also use this awesome Fabric Splendid Swirls Flower you can also find many more HERE.  The metal leaves is from Miriam's Crafting Supplies . I thought a string of peals would be a perfect addition to this cute box. Over all I think this altered box was a big hit. 


Here's a close up of the embellishments. 


Okay peeps that's all I have for you. 
Till Next Time Happy Crafting An'Jenic
