Friends with Flair Friday - {ippity} Style

It's been a couple of weeks since I've posted for Friends with Flair.  The summer has me very busy with both kids home.  But it's fun.  I only wish it would get a little cooler!

Lately I've been playing around with other things than cards.  I've been into making tags and going back to working on my journals.  Basically just playing around in similar ways that I make cards, just in my art journal.  I actually just got another journal in a 6 x 6 size in which I want to start a "scrapbook" of sorts.  Keep it art journal like, play around with paints and mediums but add pictures of my kids.

Anyhow, here is a 2 page layout in my 5 x 7 sized art journal using some {ippity} stamps.



Here is one page:


So in the end these are not that fabulous and wonderful but it's fun to just play around.  I colored the flower petals using liquitex liquid ink and added that around the edges.  The base is a newsprint paper from Stampin Up but I also stamped dream to Be all around it.

Thanks for swinging by today!  I would love to be your {ippity} chick when you order from Unity Stamp Co.  Then be sure to come on and join me on my {ippity} FB page - GOT {ippity}?

That's all for now!
