As promised, here's a layout featuring Unity -- in two ways: the stamps (of course) AND the photo!
As I mentioned in this post, meeting Maren was a total treat. This is the first of many CHA photos you'll see scrapped over the next couple months, I'm sure! I stitched on a twine "wire" for my birds, which are embossed -- as is the swirl in the lower-right corner. Note to self: next time, stitch the twine AFTER embossing. That was a "duh" moment, for sure. ;)
The birds and swirl are available as part of the Donna Downy Unity set Embrace You. Love the large scale -- perfect for pages! Embossing on textured paper gives a more rustic-looking texture, which I like. The ticket behind the title is from Here's the Ticket.
More embossing here -- I selectively inked a sentiment from May's KOM, think HAPPY thoughts, and added in some tiny type stickers to complete the thought. This was a great chance to use papers from my July Scrappy Chic goodies -- Pebbles's Floral Lane collection, which is super-cheery. Grunged up the cheer a bit with layers of tape from 7gypsies and American Crafts. Cheerful grunge: I like it!
Hope you do, too! Remember to comment all week for a chance at some Unity goodies! I'll be back tomorrow with more. Enjoy your day.
