Growing In Unity Gal - Day 5!


Hi everyone! This week went by so fast. Welcome to day 5 and my final day of my Growing in Unity week. Today I'm combining watercolor, mixed media and a little hand lettering! I am a little rusty but I love how this canvas turned out. I started by using my favorite Daniel Smith Watercolor Moonglow to create a wash for my background. Then once that was dry, I stamped my coffee image from the Love to Go stamp set by Unity Stamp Co. It's not an Angie Girl but it is a design by Angie Blom! Love her! And this coffee stamp was perfect of the sentiment I wanted to use. 


I wanted to highlight the heart so I pulled out my favorite Dina Wakley Media Heavy Body Acrylic Metallic in Rosy and colored that in then using my paint brush created some coffee beans around the cup. I love how it turned out! Thanks for joining me all week. I had a blast. 

Be sure to comment on my blog posts each day this week for your chance to win an awesome Unity Stamp Co prize pack! I'll be choosing ONE winner from all the comments left each day at the end of the week (winner to be announced Monday, April 24). Also, be sure to check out Terri's Blog, our other Growing In Unity Gal this week - she's a newbie so be sure to leave her lots of love this week as well because you have a second chance to win over there.

Love the coffee cup...it would make a great sign in a coffee shop (or a coffee lovers home!) You hand painted the coffee beans?! I thought it was a stamp! Thanks for sharing your projects this week!!!

The various shades of purples and blues look great!!! They sort of go with the color of your hair in the photo :)
