Growing In Unity
Day 3 - August 22, 2018
Hello All!. I can't believe that half of my week as a
Growing In Unity Girl is over all ready.
I hope that you have been enjoying what I have made using
Unity Stamp Company stamps, and that maybe I
have inspired your creativity.
I was inspired to start a "Quotes Journal" recently.
I LOVE quotes and sayings, and after hearing about doing one
I thought it would be perfect for me.
I love doing cards, etc using stamps because it allows me
to show my own unique perspective.
We could have the same stamp set,
and create all totally different things.
I absolutely LOVE Sunflowers.
I loved them before I went to South Dakota back in 2015
but after I went there I found a place in my heart
that makes me smile seeing them.
For my first two pages in my Quotes Journal I chose to
use Sunflowers from Unity.
Here is my two pages:
I really enjoyed doing these two pages.
For the background I decided to use my
Tim Holtz Distress Crayons.
I was trying to make a sorta of plaid pattern using them.
I know its not perfect, but it is "colorful" - smiling.
For this page of my journal I used several Unity Stamp Kits.
I LOVE Angie Girls, and of course Rebecca Girl
just had to be used. I stamped her with Sunflower in Staz On ink
and colored her with my Distress Crayons and a few
Zig Colored Markers.
I decided to use the "Vintage Ledger" stamp and
distress the edges using "Vintage Photo".
I found a saying on the internet so I wrote it on the ledger.
Remember: Don't be afraid to use your own handwriting
for journaling. It makes it more personal that way.
For the caption on the top of the page I used
one of Unity's MANY Itty Bitty stamps.
PLEASE don't let the Itty Bitty name fool you!.
You can do so much with these stamps.
I used the sentiment from "Struggle & Strength", as
I believe this is a true statement indeed.
I also used a second Sunflower Itty Bitty stamp
from Unity called "Turn Toward the Light".
Sunflowers indeed turn toward the light...
I smile whenever I see that saying.
The Sunflower image I took from a Sunflower that was
in the July 2017 - Kit Of The Month I saw that I loved.
We all need to "Believe". Believe things will get better,
Believe that we deserve to be happy...
Believe we have worth and deserve to be loved.
I used the Vintage Postcard stamp for this page of my
Quotes Journal. I used Distress Ink on the edges and a little
on the top of the Post card to make it look worn.
I found a Helen Keller quote I loved so it's now a "keeper".
I had so much fun starting this Quotes Journal
and look forward to adding more.
If you have a favorite quote for inspiration maybe you
can share it with me.
I deal with anxiety attacks, and love Sunflowers, &Tulips.
Maybe your favorite quote will end up in my journal - smiling.
Have a great day and Happy Stamping!!.
Come back tomorrow and leave a comment,
or if you missed a previous day its not to late to go and comment.
Remember I will be picking two people who comment
to win a Unity Stamp Company Grab Bag of 25 stamps!!.
After all....who can NEVER have ENOUGH Unity (smiling).
