Friends with Flair Friday!

Hey there!! TGIF!  It's time for a little Friends with Flair Unity Style!  If you are not sure what that means it's a time to share your Unity Stamp Co creations and link it up on their blog!  It's super fun and so encouraging.

Today I'm sharing a little water coloring from my water color journal.  I love following Tracey Weinzapfel and her creations.  She loves using water colors in journals.  So here is something I created with her as my inspiration.


So don't laugh!  Yes I did draw these crazy flowers!  I actually have a book of flowers it's one of those "coloring" books that you can get at Michaels.  But it has great drawings in there and I use that to draw and practice drawing.

So of course at the end I added some Unity stamps to finish it off.

Here are some other photos:



And here is a photo of the supplies I used:


The two things I always forget to add in my supply photo are the pens.  I used a white Signo and a black pen from Scarlet Lime which is a Uniball.

Well that's all for today!  Swing on by tomorrow when I host this week's Just Us Girls Challenge!

Till then!
