Unity Friends with Flair Friday


TGIF! It's Friday and time for Friends with Flair Friday. Today I wanted to share a journal spread. This is in a 5 1/4 x 7 1/4 sized hardbound journal book. I used the awesome Donna Downey Unity flowers called Donna Poppy Bkgrnd. LOVE this stamp so perfect for journals, I can see using this often. Here I went pretty simple with it.



I used a very light pink acryclic paint for the background. I stamped in archival ink. The bottoms "grass" was paper that I cut out. I used Liquitex Acrylic inks to color using a paintbrush the flowers and the grass. The butterflies are paper pieced and are from the {ippity} kit called Now and Always. The sentiment is also from an {ippity} kit called Music of My Heart. And the dots in the "grass" is the Unity background stamps called Polka Dot Jam. Finally I added some stickles to the flowers for some glitzy fun!

So I love how this turned out with the flowers and how I colored the flowers (LOVE those liquitex inks) but of course I still think it needs more. Maybe some journaling would be nice or more awesome Unity sentiment stamps would work. SO, I might have to work on this page some more but wanted to share what I have so far.

If you love {ippity} please stop by my Etsy Shop Tykat Supplies for {ippity} stamps. If you are looking for a kit that I don't' have in the shop be sure to let me know.

Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to swing on by the Unity blog today and see who else links up for Friends with Flair Friday!

Till later.....
