Growing in Unity- Day 5

 Welcome to day 5 of my stint as the GIU (Growing in Unity) girl.  I'm showing you my creations all week long and if you comment every day on my blog post, you'll be entered into a random drawing for 25 random stamps from the Unity Stamp Company.  Wowza, 25 stamps!  
Who wouldn't love that?!  2 winners will be selected.

For this creation, I stepped out of my comfort zone a bit.  Working with mixed media pastes is not my thing.  I decided to do some water coloring and used some glitter paste for the first time.  The stamp set used here, is from the Layers of Life May 2014 kit, "Never lose their Beauty".

I started out doing some water coloring with distress ink, first stamping my image on water color paper, then adding additional color.  I also used the Unity background stamp, "Tattered Chicken Wire".

Having zero experience working with paste, I found this video from the Scrapbook Expo and Bo Bunny, maker of the paste I'm using today, Copper Glitter Paste.  This technique worked great!  I used a Mod Podge Peel and Stick stencil with the paste.

Here's a close-up of the Unity sentiment. 
I also added some Bo Bunny pearlescent to my mixed media project and clear Wink Of Stella glitter brush on my flowers and sentiment.  Lastly, I made a burlap string butterfly from May Arts Ribbon string.  I love how this turned out.  I'll definitely be doing more of these type projects in the future.

 Thanks so much for letting me share my love of Unity Stamps with you this week.  Don't forget to leave a comment here so you can qualify for the random drawing.  And for a shameless plug, I'd love if you would come and like me on FB: because when I get to 500 likes, I'm having a big giveaway!
