Happy Monday!!! Hope everyone had a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving weekend.
Today starts my week long adventure being a Growing In Unity (GIU) girl. I am super excited to be sharing some of my projects.
My first project for this week was my own adventure. Recently I purchased some Silks Acrylic Glaze. I spent a lot of time with the demonstrator at the Scrapbook Expo playing with these paints and was very inspired. Then I brought some home and looked at them for a few weeks, not really knowing what to do. Those demonstrators make everything look so easy and by the time you get home with the products I loose some of my inspiration. So for today's project I decided to open the jars and take the Silks out for a spin.
First I painted different colors onto a piece of book paper, layering to blend some of the colors. The paper sure feels like silk after the glaze dries. I then stamped the Hot Air Balloon image from the Adventurous Stamps set from Unity. I embossed the image with black embossing powder . I then used my sparkling H2O's to color the flowers and balloon.
I think it turned out great for my first attempt. And of course I did learn some things as well.
Please be sure that you come back daily and comment all week. Unity has been very generous and has allowed me to give one lucky reader an Itty Bitty Stamp of their choice. I will be randomly choosing from all the comments and the winner will be picked Sunday.
I will be entering this card into the following challenges
