Unity Friends with Flair Friday!

Unity Stamp Company


Welcome to Friday and another Friends with Flair Unity Style. Be sure to swing by the Unity Blog for a full list of Friends participating today and be sure to keep your eye out for that FABULOUS UNITY FRIENDS WITH FLAIR BLINKIE, you just might win something!!

It seems that each week I've been using some canvas and this week is no different! I used stretched canvas (is that what they call it, you know those things on wood that painters use LOL :-) ) as my base to make a layout. Here it is:



I painted the canvas with a pink acrylic paint then added some "dry brushing" in a darker paint to get the background effect. I used the Unity kit called Explore Today and Every Day. Then I made all those Tim Holtz inspired paper flowers for the trim and the "gems" are from Prima.


Another view:

Well that's it for now! So are you guys STILL on the search for that darn blinkie??? Did you find it yet?


Unity Flair!

I happy to be hanging with the blinkie this week!! So leave me a comment and I'll try and pick YOUR name on Saturday via a random draw to win some Unity Goodies!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Till later....
