FWF - GIU - Natural

Happy Friday Everyone - TGIF! Well - it has been such a fun week sharing my love of Unity with you guys!  I will definitely have to do this again!  Today I decided to play along with a couple different challenges.  The Play Date Cafe and CPS.  PDC has the pretty colors of Purple, Lilac, and Lime - very striking colors.  They center paper came about as I was talking to my Grandmother and she was telling a cool new technique she just saw done over a Paper Wishes (if you go to the webisode it is about 15min in.).  Take a shallow dish of water and touch the tip of your smooch color in several spots with as many colors as you would like.  After I did that I took a knitting needle and swirled all the colors around to make it look marbleized. I thought it matched the very psychedelic look of the mushrooms. So Thanks to Grandma for a new technique!
Don't forget to keep your eye out for the blinkie to win some Unity goodness. And if you leave some love on every days posts you have a chance to win some Unity Rubber right here!

Thank you so much for everyone who has followed along this week!

  8. Great color combo, and that marbled technique looks perfect with the mushrooms! I used to do something like that technique as a kid by scraping off bits of chalk into a shallow pan of water and then putting the paper down on top. It makes a fun effect, too! Happy Friday!
