Emily's Back to the 80's Birthday Blog Hop

What's up dudes? It's Erin here. Let's all dig out our legwarmers, side ponytails, hair crimpers and bangles and take a trip back to the 80s! I loved the 80s. Actually, I was born in 1980. So you could definitely say I was an 80s girl.

When I was brainstorming this project, I remembered one of my favorite things about the 80s - Michael Jackson. He was (and is still) a HUGE pop icon and transformed music with hits such as Thriller, Beat It and Don't Stop Til You Get Enough. Classics!
I decided to go with a mixed media canvas. I found this image online and used the trace feature on my Cameo to create a silhouette cut out of MJ himself. I did a LOT of paint splattering with crazy bright colors and lots of little trinkets. My favorite is the truly vintage Cabbage Patch Kids puffy sticker pulled from a VERY old collection. So much fun! This one might even go up in my craft room. All stamps used are from Unity Stamp Company, including the Embrace Your Funky Self sentiment. I think it fits perfectly. I went over everything with sparkle Mod Podge, of course!
For this hop, I'm giving away a Unity Stamp Company itty bitty! I love my itty bittys. This one happens to be one of my favorites - so I thought I would share one with one of my followers who comments on this post :)
So turn up the Michael Jackson music, moonwalk around and then hop on over to the next stop on the blog hop the talented Miss Sarah (aka Pink Cricut). Have fun! If you get lost, just start at Emily's Blog. Happy Birthday Emily!
