It's a Flip Flop Hip Hop!!

What a fun Hip Hop we are having today!




Flip Flop Hip Hop


It's a FLIP FLOP HIP HOP!!

You will be directed to all the DT members by clicking on the "Next Blog" icons from each blog.  Hopefully you are arriving to my blog from Karen's.  And next I will be sending you off to Lisa A's blog!

My project was based on this week's Hip Hop Sketch Challenge HHSC26


The Unity stamp set that I chose to work with is the Donna Downey set called She! (Available only in stores.  To find a store near you, please click HERE!)  I love this set and intend to make a complete album using the whole collection.  My album will be a sort of autobiography taking me from young womanhood til now and talking about the accomplishments, challenges and dreams that I have experienced in my life.

I made the cover for my album for today's project using the sketch above.


The DP is from Basic Grey's Pyrus collection.  I cut strips at various lengths and widths and staggered them onto the background paper that I spritzed with Glimmer Mists.  The edges of the cover were distressed with Jumbo Java ink and it was adhered to a chipboard album cover by Zutter.  I also added a piece of lace to add more texture, dimension and femininity to the cover.


I colored the faceless lady with Copic Markers and used only the word "She"as my album's title.  "She" will be defined by my stories that will follow in the future.

For some more Unity goodness by one of our Ippity girls, please head over to Lisa Arana's blog!

Have a great day and we sure hope you enjoyed us flipping this around a bit today! We enjoyed the chance to play with some of our other favorite stamps!!   Please stop by the SCS Unity Forum today for some chit chatting and prize give aways!!
