Day 5 of Growing in Unity!
In case you don't know what Growing in Unity is all about it's a way for those who love Unity stamps to share their Unity creations and be in the spotlight for a week. This was started a long time ago and recently passed on to me to organize and I am so happy to be a part of it. If you want to be a part of the fun check out this thread
in the Unity SCS forum for more details.
Today I "altered" a door hanger. This is a wooden unfinished door hanger you can get at Michael's for $1.00. I painted it with white acrylic paint and then covered it using this cool paper. I used modge podge as my adhesive and used it over the paper as well to seal and give it a shine. For both projects today I used the "SHE"
kit. I used the fabulous quote from it on both projects. I just love this one. My flowers are Prima and the buttons are SU. I used Momento Dew Drops to achieve the multi colored look on the quote.
I just love that blue and green together so vibrant I think. I love this door hangers. I made one a while ago and my 4 year daughter took and has hanging on her door. For that one I used some sort of fun animal image I think. But for $1 the possibilities are endless with this and makes a cool little gift.
Here it is again actually hanging on a door handle, I wasn't sure which photo came out better so I'm using both:
So with the left over paper I covered a little composition book. Now can I ask why don't they make those black and white composition books hard anymore? Remember when the full sized ones where hard backs and didn't bend etc. I have a few still on hand for altering but in the stores now they are soft! What the kids are beating each other up with them?? LOL!
Anyhow, this is a small compo book which measures 3.5" x 4.5":

Well check back tomorrow as I hope to have something stamped on canvas. I tried with a canvas drop cloth from home depot per the fabulous Angie Blom, but it didn't turn out as nice as I hoped. I might share it anyhow, along with some stamping on canvas board I got at Michael's! :-)
Well that's all for now!
Thanks for stopping by!
