Unity Friends with Flair Friday / Art Journal Friday

Unity Friends with Flair Friday / Art Journal Friday

Happy Friday everyone! So today I had all the intentions of sharing another journal layout but my kids were sick most of the week so I didn't have the time to finish it.  I did however get a background done so I thought I would at least share that along with another video.

Here is what my background looks like.  I took 2 Unity background stamps.  These aren't the big ones they are the smaller ones.  Using Rangers Perfect Medium I stamped the backgrounds any which way and using Clear Embossing powder I heat embossed the images.  Then I took 3 Dylusions sprays and sprayed away (sorry the yellow bottle is not pictured below).  And the end result was a nice resist.  I did a resist technique on a card recently and thought why not in my journal and with my sprays.




ETA:  So this morning I was able to work on more of the journal spread and wanted to share the part I did finish:


So is it truly finished, we shall see.  I have some stuff going on on the other side as well to complete the entire thing so as I finish the whole thing I'm sure I'll play with this side some more.  SOOO.... I will share the entire finished version for next week's FWF!

To this page the Pink I used is the Hero Arts NEON inks, LOVE THEM!  And I stamped the "title" on a ATC sized Canvas sticky pack by Ranger.

Now for the video.  This is a short video sharing the different type of journals that I have.  The majority of my stamping in general uses Unity stamps so odds are most stamped images you see in the video are Unity.  This video was actually part of my first video I posted last week but I cut this part out so I apologize for the abrupt start to it.  I'm still learning how to edit.  But more importantly I need to figure out why it's grainy.  My original raw video was clear and fine, then I brought it into iMovie and that's when it became grainy.  I used a webcam to record and I wonder if it's not a good one to use with a Mac because its features are limited now that I have a Mac.  Anyhow....  I'll keep trying to figure that out.




Now in other news, I'm organizing a Art Journal Blog Hop which will probably be at the end of April. So if anyone is interested in participating please let me know!  If you already art journal or you want to try come join us it will be fun!

As always I appreciate you stopping by!
