Growing in Unity day 3


I did a page in my art journal using stamps from the past kit of the month called Everyday Fairytale. I used two different techniques. I did masking technique to have the lightbulb look like it is over the books. With the masking technique you stamp the “front” image first then cover it up and stamp the “back” image. I then did a technique called highlighting where you only color part of the image to make it look like it is highlighted. I did this by using a ruler to draw parallel lines. I watercolored it. I added highlights with a white gel pen. I also added gilding flakes. I hand wrote holy Bible on one of the books. I also wrote the scripture. Hope this inspires you. Come back tomorrow for another fun project using Unity Stamps.

Growing in Unity day 2

 For my project today I am sharing a bookmark. I have a group of kids that I teach for an after school program at my church. I was doing a lesson on not worrying. Matthew 6:26 was their memory verse that we were learning.   I went through all my stamps and pulled out birds and stamped them on bookmarks for the kids to color. Well of course I had to keep one for myself. This is the one I kept. I watercolored the birds. I hand wrote the scripture. I doodled the edges and painted the edges. I added embroidery floss at the top. The kids loved the bookmarks and all the “extras” were quickly claimed. Come back tomorrow for another fun project using Unity stamps.

Growing in Unity

I stamped the heart and masked it. I then stamped the music notes. I added a hand drawn banner that I hand lettered. To finish my artist trading card I doodled around the edges, watercolored the heart and watercolored the shading and I added some little rhinestones.  Thanks for visiting. Come back tomorrow to see another project using Unity.
