Day 1 - Growing In Unity - Scrapper Myra

Hello my friends. 

This is my first post as a Growing In Unity gal. I am very happy to be able to lead you through one week of fun, by sharing creativity and this wonderful hobby of crafting/Scrapbooking. 

Remember to follow all my five posts this week. There will be one each day from Monday to Friday. I will share with you some projects using stamps from Unity Stamp Co., and you can make comments, ask whatever you want, get inspired and simply have fun. 

At the end of the week I will randomly choose two winners to get 25 stamps from generous Unity Stamp Co.  How cool is that?

I have created several projects just for this week. I tried to have different styles and techniques so we can have even more fun sharing all. 

The first project I want to share with you is a bookmark. I chose to use this image for the fist GIU project because it is exactly how I feel. I am Wonder Woman this week. LOL!


I used craft paper as base and sprayed some colors from Prima Color Blooms sprays. I used blue, yellow, some darker blue and more... until I got the desired effect. I wanted to achieve the look of a galaxy or kind of...


The WW image was first stamped in the galaxy to mark her position. Then It was stamped separately in an ivory cardstock. I used Copics, watercolor pencils/paints and acrylic paint to color this lady.   I also added some glossy accents and glitter to certain sections I wanted to emphasize.  Then I cut the image and adhered to her position in the bookmark. 


Finally, I stamped the sentiment in vellum and applied embossing powder to heat and melt and get it fabulous.  Some sequins always support a nice final touch. 

Hope you liked my first project. Don't forget to comment below and in my Facebook page.  You'll find me as Scrapper Myra. 


Thank youuuuuu!!!

A review of the GIU process and a surprise bonus:

Posts will be originated in my blog and you can visit everyday to read the post and comment.  You will want to comment  on all five posts because at the end of the week I will choose two random winners to receive 25 stamps from Unity.  

But there's more...  I will share the link in my Facebook page too.  If you like my page, and also follow the Facebook posts interacting with likes, comments and shares,  you will participate in another draw to win a kit from Unity (this one"s on me!).  Here's a photo of the kit I will be giving away to a Facebook winner. 


Thank you again for your participation and support. 

Sneak Peek for tomorrow:
Hint:  canvas

I am also sharing this creation and all this week with my friends at Craft Stamper magazine. There's an Anything Goes Challenge going on and am trying to participate as much as possible to collaborate with it.
