Guest Designer-Growing in Unity Day 3

Well I am up to day three of my Growing in Unity

 I will be featuring projects using Unity Stamp Co stamps all week.  

Look for a new post everyday this week.

I have decided on a bit of mixed media on canvas today using Angie Blom's "Harmony Girl"



 The background has been made with Acrylic paints 


 I stamped the image onto some tissue and coloured it from the back....If you paint around the image with water you can then pull away the excess tissue and leave a ragged edge which then looks better when you stick it to the canvas


I have then added stencils flowers and butterflies along with the sentiment

Dont forget
