Create Yourself

Hey friends! I sure hope you are having a FANTASTIC day! I might be in a recycling mood lately because of Earth Day coming up on the 22nd...not sure lol. But I'm definitely inspired by things around the house for my mixed media projects and this one is no exception! . All of the stamps used on this project are Unity. I used several to create the background as well as the large sentiment which I think is just wonderful! I used the Unity Be Inspired color challenge (#13) for April as my color inspiration. I might frame this if I can find one to fit it properly. Entering this for the following:
I started with a piece of corrugated cardboard a bit smaller than 8x8" and painted the base with white, silver and translucent gloss letting some drip and dotted randomly with one of those shipping peanuts found in packaging. I found that spreading some of my homemade texture paste onto a torn piece of sturdy card stock then stamping directly onto it creates a cool effect! I will be trying this in other ways for sure!
 Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a creative and blessed day! Now, off to see what you lovely peeps have been up to!
