Unity Stamps Color Challenge

Coincidently, this week I made two cards for some friends and they matched the colors of the challenge at Unity Stamps, yay!


I was actually going to make them for the picture challenge, but I ran out of time.  When I went to the challenge page, the information for the next challenge was already up so I went with what I already had!

I made a banner and added some butterflies and a flower group.  I used the Wish With Your Heart Sentiment Kit which just happens to be on sale this week!  I stamped the wish sticks on a doily also and the round circle in orange and black.


This one is for a friend who is a little under the weather. I used the same stamp kit, but stamped the wish sticks in black only.


This week I’m working on a baby mixed media project and I’ll post that one soon!

Thanks for stopping by!


Life Book Week Five

Oh boy, this week came by fast!  I can’t believe it’s almost February!  Where does the time go when you’re having fun!

For Life Book Week Five, we had the sensational Rachael Rice who instructed us on how to make a dream catcher.


I used a vintage doily I bought in Ruidso, New Mexico at an antique store.  I think I’ll be buying more of these to use in future projects.

Here is a close up of the doily.  I tried adding dimensional fabric paint, but I guess I didn’t wait long enough (Yes, one of my intentions for this year is to have patience) so it ran a bit.  I’ll let it go for now and see how I can fix it later.


The next project was a bonus by the ever joyful Tamara Laporte, who by the way, posted a most beautiful mixed media video on how to create whimsical florals.  It is in double time, but you can get lots of ideas from it and create your own.  So on to my project from Tamara this week:


I love the way this one came out.  I also used one of Unity Stamps quotes that fits perfectly with the intention of the feather.

Here is a close up of the quote:


There was an empty space there before, so even though Tamara wanted us to leave plenty of white space; I don’t think this quote will interfere with the rest of the page.

For more information about the projects I’ve been creating, and to sign up for this year-long class go visit Willowing Art.  She has a free four-week course when you sign up for her newsletter.  Great way to get your feet wet and see what Tamara is all about.

All the projects created for this class are on 11×14 watercolor paper.  At the end of the year, all the pages will be bound into a journal we will be making ourselves.

Thanks for visiting today!

Happy crafting!
