Day 5 - Growing In Unity - Scrapper Myra


It's Friday!!  I bet Friday is the most favorite day to most people in the world, Isn't it?

Well , this is my last post as a Growing In Unity gal.  I've enjoyed sharing my posts, showing my projects and reading all your comments.  Thank you so much for your love. 

I have to remind you  to visit all my five posts this week and leave comments in all for a chance to win stamps from Unity Stamp Co.  More information at the end of this post and in Monday's post. 

Also, I was sharing this wonderful week with veteran GIU gal Brittany Morgan... aka The Crafty Paper Bee. 
She has also shared great creations in her blog and you can also visit and comment for more chances to win.  This is the link:  http://craftypaperbee.blogspot.com/?m=1

For my last post I chose to share a special Mixed Media project.  As wine lovers my sommelier DH and I try lots of different wines. A while ago we bought two Magnums (magnum is the name for a 1.5L bottle of wine).   But these bottles came each in a nice kit box with a decanter... very nice presentation.  So there were these two insets with the shape of a wine bottle and the hoarder in me has saved them in her storage room (I mean my craft room). 


Anyway... long story short ... I had to make something with these inserts!!!


I cut chipboard to the size of the insert and draw the shape of the bottle. I applied gesso as base and started creating with different media. For one of the projects I used a lot of acrylic paint and modeling paste, leading with  red, yellow and white colors.  For the other one I used more plum color as main, and complemented with some blue, red and white. 




So I used stencils, modeling paste, spray and acrylic paints, pearls, chains, cork, burlap, metals, sequins, vellum , and of course....... stamps.   When finished, I framed the creations using the inserts I had used as stencils and now I ended up with two pieces that my husband want to frame and use for home decoration.  LOL!


I will share some close up pictures of different sections so you can appreciate them.  And thank you again for your comments and participation this week. Please keep following me in my blog, Facebook and Instagram. I will continue sharing my projects just for fun.  Because we learn by sharing and because this hobby is about Unity of people around the world. 








Thanks!!!  Bye... and don't forget to be imperfect. 

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.

Wonderful mixed media--my mantra has always been 'anything can be used for scrapbooking.' You've taken this to an artform. Good work.

Absolutely beautiful, Myra! I can't stop looking at all the little details in each project - what a brilliant way to repurpose something that people would normally throw away into a beautiful piece of art. Fantastic way to conclude your GIU week!

I had to laugh when I read that you saved those boxes because I have to fight the urge to keep everything too. OF course, since you and your husband are wine lovers, how could you ever throw out something as cool as this? Your mixed media pieces are so fun, and full of color and texture. I have two Unity wine themed stamp sets and now I can't wait to use them. Thanks for a great GIU week!

What a fun way to upcycle packaging and just perfect for wine lovers! I rarely do mixed media projects but I love making my own home decor so this really drew me in. My husband and I are part of a wine club for a local winery and I'm going to start looking at the wine boxes in a new way now. Thanks for such a great variety of art projects for your week with Unity.
