Unity's Brown Thursday 2017 Hop!


What have you all been up to lately?

It's been so long since we've hopped. I hope all is well with you. I'm HAPPY the season has changed to Fall and the time is back to normal--YES! It's my favorite time of year I think.

For the hop, I'm sharing a fold-over tag page I did for my li'l thrifted address book that's full of Unity goodness!




Here's a peek at the outside of the tag page.
This little book is getting filled QUICK!


I LOVE this sentiment! It really sings to my heart.

I used my Silhouette to help design this fold-over tag page for my stamping project and paper-pieced and colored the image with distress ink.

Here's a look at the stamp kit, Little Stuff, by Phyllis Harris.


I also put together a 5-x-7-inch mixed media canvas using last month's SMAK Kit.



First, I layered some distress paint on the canvas in the following colors: pumice stone, dusty concord, evergreen bough, pine needles, and scattered straw. While I waited for the distress paints to dry on the canvas, I carefully stamped the SMAK images onto tissue paper using jet black and stone gray Stazon inks and I let that dry just for a bit. It’s pretty quick actually. I printed a picture of a housing structure onto tissue paper and used my heat tool to dry it before cutting it out and adhering it to the canvas with the other layers of stamped tissue paper. These images were adhered to the canvas with gel medium and a lightly wet paint brush. Then I edged the canvas with picket fence distress ink and used a ruler with a copic multiliner to add an inky-looking border.

Loving the "It's the little things" stamp. I'm getting ready to retire at the end of this month and as I'm moving through the different stages of my life, the more I realize that it certainly is the little things in life that make a difference.
