FWF Friday High Day!!

Ok - be gentle with me. Many of you have asked about my art journal, so I'm showing you a little glimpse. This page is not finished, but it is an example of what I'm working on. This combines art techniques, supplies, textures, ideas I want to try and documentation about where I am in life right now. It's rough, but, it's also fresh.

I used Gesso to create a rough texture (Gesso is an artists canvas primer made of glue and chalk) then adhered bits and pieces of some of my favorite papers. I stamped my Unity stamps over the surface and colored them with my Copic markers (owls). This page will be all about my journey into the gluten free world. It is a huge change for my DH and me, who LOVE all things pasta. I will have a journaling block to add to this page too, and you can bet it will be one of the many great blocks made by Unity.

Check out the Unity blog for all the Friends with Flair! Each blog on the list is chock full of fabulous stuff. Not to mention the sales and perks to just plain clear thinking quotes on the Unity blog, all the time. Be sure to find that blinkie for your chance to win free rubber!

See you real soon!

  5. I'm doing something similar...I call it my play book. I stamp, paint, draw, etc. in it just to see how it looks.
