Growing In Unity Day 3!!!!!

Welcome to Day 3 of Growing In Unity! I love this project! I bought this 7 Gypsies Printer's Tray and had no idea what I would put in it. The only thing I knew for sure was I was going to use Unity stamps!

I cut Canvas Paper to fit the sections. I painted them with acrylic paint to coordinate with the SU DP I chose to use because it coordinates with the colors in my craft room ;)
I wanted to decorate each section differently. This is all so me! The section on the right above has flowers which were cut out of the designer paper. I put Ranger matte medium on them for a little stability and shine.
Under the house image above is a piece of Japanese masking tape from Love My Tapes.
I wish Glimmer Mist was easier to photograph! The green section above is completely covered in Olive GM. The heart is colored in with the GM. I saw Marion Smith do this by dipping a paintbrush in the bottle. It blurred the ink a bit, but I kind of like it that way.
The butterfly, the "perfect" tag, and the ribbon are also sprayed. I used gold Smooch Spray. The bow in the right section has a beautiful jeweled button from Webster's Pages on it. So pretty!
the section on the left above has some wide twill with Japanese masking tape across it. The flower in the corner is actually two flowers stacked for more volume. The "family" tag is sponged with Tim Holtz Old Paper Distress Ink. The flowers in the right section were as white as the ones in the left section, but I sprayed them with Sea Glass Glimmer Mist.
Love this lace from Fancy Pants. The section on the right has a metal embellishment from SEI with an SU rub on.
The green section above has some Tim Holtz Grunge Board die cuts that I found at an outlet store for cheap! Sprayed them with Gold Smooch Spray. The heart was from a Donna Downey kit. It's sprayed with White Smooch Spray. Just yummy!!! The last section has a flower that is a combination of 3 different flowers layered to make one big full flower!
Thanks for checking in today. I hope you like it as much as I liked making it. Make sure you comment and come back the rest of the week to be entered in the drawing!
