Hip Hop with Unity - Marah Johnson!

Good morning and good day!  If you're here for the UNITY HIP HOP  - WELCOME!

I am THRILLED to show you what I've done with the NEW Marah Johnson co-branded stamps from Unity Stamp Co.  These are BIG stamps, scrapbooking stamps, artsy stamps, ME stamps!  They come in 8.5 x 11 sheets of rubber!  Talk about a lot of stamps.

Here is a peek of the stamp sets I used:

-art, soul, label, flourish, bird, nurture quote, crown, ampersand


Here is my FIRST layout using these stamps: Julie's ART & SOUL

This is a photo of a VERY pregnant me, last November.  My sister is a photographer (Vine Images), started her own business about 7 years ago, and this is a tribute to her and her art.

I wanted the paper's edge to show through, so I cut the STAMPED label in half and separated it.  Lots of the stamping I did was directly onto the paper, and I think these stamps suited this TEXT paper.  The bright yellow flowers were spritzed with Rolling in the Hay SHIMMERZ spritz, to make it match better.   I also spritzed some Shimmerz onto the paper.

Aren't these words beautiful?  I love the font Marah chose.

Unity Stamps: Art & Soul, Breathless
Patterned Paper: Bo Bunny
Ink: Ranger (Peeled Paint, Pitch Black)
Flowers: Dollarama
Shimmerz Spritz: Rolling in the Hay (Gold)
Canvas Letters: Making Memories
Photo Anchors: 7 Gypsies
Adhesive: Glue Arts, Glue Glider Pro, Glue Gun
Leaves: Prima
Other: Dymo Labelmaker

Here is a reminder of the Kit of the Month for January.

Do you know about the Hip Hop Sketches?  If you play along, you can win some stamps!  I'm thinking that people just don't know where to find these challenges and where to upload.  You can find the information at Splitcoast Stampers in Unity's Challenge Forum


Now it's time to hop on over to the next blog in the hop!
