It's me! Happy again for another Friday... and specially this one because I am going on vacation.... (can you hear me screaming?). Thank you God!
I had 2 days off from work during Summer, but have not been able to have longer period of vacations in a year!!!! I am very tired... and I've traveled a lot but basically to work... But now is my turn and I'm going on vacation... I'll tell you about it when I come back. It's a dream come true!
The thing is that I will be kind of "disconnected" the next two weeks. I think I am going to miss your "faces"(usually substituted by your comments on the blog, LOL!!!).
Anyways, last night I started to create just for fun. I was supposed to be packing or doing something for the trip, but I was so tired coming home late from office that my mind was in another planet.
I was thinking on making a suitcase tag or maybe an embellishment for a layout or something... but I didn't have the results I had in my mind... I do like what I could finish though...
I wanted to mix some media to free my spirit and mind, so I cut a piece of patterned paper as base, to which I adhered half a doily and stamped one of my favorite Unity stamps (which is this lady without face), then applied embossing powder and embossed with the heating gun.
I absolutely love the texture that came out when combined the stamp in the doily and the embossing.
So I used yellow acrylic paint with a brush and my fingers, to add some color to the image and the frame, and added some glittered dots of glossy accents. I have to admit I had bought some acrylic paintings a long time ago and they were asking me to use them so bad.... So I picked the yellow one so they didn't keep yelling at me... LOL!
I even painted some lines of the pattern with watercolor pencils to accent some of the colors... If you look closely there's some purple shades in the patterned paper... these are not part of it, it's watercolor.
Stamped a sentiment, added some baker's twine and placed in a blue card-stock base... Then stamped with flowers and backgrounds the card base... But again, wasn't completely satisfied, so I added this tulle ribbon in the back before adhering to the card base.
And I liked it! I really love to mix different textures. I feel freedom when I can stamp, and paint with a brush, and with a pencil, and my fingers... The bad thing is the mess I have in my table and that I have to fix before leaving on vacation...
Thanks for stopping by... and thanks for your comments.
I'm going to link this to Unity's blog for the Friday's Friends with Flair, so when you leave a comment you are also participating for the opportunity to win fabulous stamps.
Have a great Friday!!!
