Growing In Unity Blog Hop!



Hi everyone! Welcome to another Growing In Unity blog hop! Be sure to visit each blog and leave a comment for your chance to win one of 2 prize packages available. For my project, I pulled out the kit I chose for my week of Growing In Unity posts called Beautiful One. I fell in love with this kit as soon as I saw it with the Angie girl and all the florals.


I love an already made background - especially when I'm short on time which is all the time lately. Just me?! haha I created this page in my handmade art journal and I have all the backgrounds already created using a variety of Dina Wakely Heavy Body acrylic paints. I picked one and knew I wanted to stamp the girl from this kit using Archival Ink so I could color it in with Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks. Then using the same scribble sticks I stamped one of the floral stamps on my page for a bit of texture. I added my journaling, some doodles and that's it! I'm currently 19 weeks pregnant with our 5th and while I don't have a so called pregnancy book, I find that I will art journal about this baby here and there in many different journals. A little sporatic...just like me!
