Unity’s 10th Birthday Celebration Blog Hop!

HAPPY Birthday! Wow—10 Years. Congratulations to everyone at Unity Stamp Company!

For this month’s hop, I’m sharing a 5-x-7-inch mixed media canvas I put together using the NEW Obsessed with Florals Background Kit created by Angie Blom with a sentiment from this month’s Kit of the Month.


QUICK PROCESS: First I applied some distress paint to the canvas and allowed time for it to dry. I stamped right onto printed tissue paper and adhered the stamped/printed tissue paper to the canvas with gel medium (allow time to dry). I framed the background stamp with some Faber-Castell Pitt Artist pens and filled it in here and there with distress ink and acrylic paint. I stamped the sentiment and fussy cut it, so that the format of the sentiment is how you see it on the canvas. Then I adhered a die cut heart and wrapped the canvas with some jute twine.

Here’s a peek at the kit.

Here’s a look—see at another canvas I created earlier this month. I believe this one is 8-x-10-inches.


The butterfly was a recent Unity freebie and the sentiment is from last month’s Layers of Life kit.

We have TWO amazing Unity filled prize packages to giveaway. Leave a comment on EACH blog in the hop (including the Unity blog) for your chance to win.

PRIZE WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED MONDAY NIGHT
