Hello everyone and welcome to day 5, my final day, of my Growing in Unity week with Unity Stamp Company!! This week has been so much fun, and I have truly LOVED reading all the comments both here and on Facebook, thank you all! Be sure to leave another comment today for a chance to win some surprise deeply etched red rubber!! Good Luck!!
Today I did something different. I made a 12×12 scrapbook layout!! I used the Free Your Dreams KOM to create this fairly CAS layout. I actually created 4 of these for a swap group I was in, with dolls as the theme. I paper pieced the shirt and headband on my girl, and then watercolored her hair and skin with Zig markers. My sentiments were from my stash, because I wanted the July for my title 😉
For some extra flair I took that sheet out of my 6×6 pad with all the stripes and ephemera that I never know what to do with and cut some strips off and staggered them behind the girl! I really like what it added! I chose a green mat for my photo (have yet to print it of course, it’s of my daughter!) and a few scattered embellishments just for fun.
I was looking at it after that point and couldn’t decide if I was done…so I did what I always do and kept messing with it! I grabbed a ruler and a black Micron pen and drew a frame of sorts around the mat, not crossing through my sentiments. The bow was also a last minute add, using a die I have in my stash and some thin washi tape I added to dress it up a bit. And THEN I was done!!!
Thank you so much for your kindness and support, not only this week, but ALWAYS!! I love creating and sharing with all of you!
