Happy Happy Saturday (I'm writing this at midnight)!
Whoa - it's gonna feel so good to be able to sleep in a bit!
Never realized how crazy it would be to have a Grade 5er, Kindergartener and a Preschooler... with classes all starting and ending at different times! I do get a 'bit' of time to myself though... but not enough for me to sit and create something. I feel like my life revolves around the clock right now.
Anyway, I am SUPER EXCITED to be hosting this month' Unity Challenge!
For all the new Unity fans - you'll notice that there's several different challenges going on at once! There's the Kit of the Month Challenge (which starts on the 1st), there's link up for Friends with Flair Fridays (every week) and this - which ALWAYS start on the 15th, and always have a theme. Not to mention all the challenges going on over at the Ippity blog, and there's occasional challenges running over on Unity Facebook wall as well!
So - I got to pick a theme for the challenge... and guess what I chose? PENNANTS and BANNERS!
Yippee!!! They are like my favorite things right now... along with canvas, burlap, doily, rosettes, washi tape, wooden chips... lol...
For my project, I decided to take my fave alphabet stamps, and decided to make a little Halloween banner that you can set on your party table! I was gonna do a card, or a layout... but just felt like being different! I also wanted to let you know that ANY type of project is okay for the challenge - as long as it uses Unity stamps.
Here are the pics!
I decided to go backwards today, and show you all the close ups first before showing you the whole thing!
Don't you just LOVE these papers, too? It's the Lost and Found Halloween Collection from My Mind's Eye, and kraft Funday Everyday Fun papers... just can't get enough of it!
I love the black canvas! I inked it up with off white ink to make it a little 'worn'.
As you can see, I've added banners on top of the pennants to bring out the letters :)
Just loving these half rosettes... always have made them round, but here, round was just a 'bit' much, so half was perfect!
I hung this banner on a wooden dowel covered with washi tape, and stuck it inside one of those Starbucks coffee drink jars (yeah, I keep them... kinda scary to see how many of these I've drank!) and filled it up with rice.
... and thanks for being patient with me - here's the whole project!
Okay, that's it! Hope that you liked my project!
Here are the stamps I used:
I bet now that you want to make something PENNNANTS and BANNERS related! Am I right or am I right? :)
It's fun and one random winner will receive a kit of choice (valued up to $45!)
So why not? There's nothing to lose!... I hope that you consider entering the challenge!
