February 2018 Unity Stamp Company HOP!

Happy Hop Day, Unity enthusiasts!

For today’s hop, I’m sharing a 5-x-7-inch mixed media canvas I made using Tierra Jackson’s latest stamp set, “All Cylinders”!


To begin, I painted my canvas using white acrylic paint. While the paint was drying, I printed my collaged background, using digital papers and accents by Glitz Girls, onto tissue paper. Once that was printed, I heat set it using my heat tool. I adhered my tissue paper background onto the canvas using gel medium and used my heat tool to help that dry. Then I applied more gel medium over the top. Using a black Faber-Castell Pitt pen, I doodled the border around the canvas. The sentiment embellishments were printed onto photo paper and adhered to the canvas using adhesive. The car was paper pieced and adhered to the canvas using 3D Zots.

Here’s a peek at the entire kit:


Last month, I shared on the Unity Blog an 8-1/2-x-11-inch scrapbook layout I created using last month’s Uniquely Unity stamp set, “Hello My Dear Friend”.

I decided to pair that elegant set with a recent photo of my daughters. It was my youngest daughter, Gwen’s, first Winter Formal dance of high school. Gwen is on the right. Brandi, my oldest daughter, jumped in for a picture wearing the dress she wore to her Winter Formal when she was in high school. I was smitten with the photo.


Somewhere I have an original photo of the two of them from Brandi’s dance when Gwen was just a wee little thing posing with her big sister. I’m hoping to scrap it with this one someday, kind of a cute side-by-side comparison/then-and-now kinda thing. What do you think? I’d love to hear some feedback.

Here’s a close-up of the layout.


TIP: You can fussy cut a sentiment if you just need one of the words for your project. “Hello” was fussy cut from the sentiment that was in last month’s Uniquely Unity set.
