Growing in Unity - day 3!!

Happy Wednesday!!! :) It's supposed to be raining here in MI. We'll see what the day brings!

This canvas is my grandbaby. :) It's a pic from Christmas, turned into a sketch, and printed on Neenah. Took 2 tries for the canvas, let's just say the first one was a colossal FAIL! LOL!!

Supplies used:

Unity, Donna Downey, The Artist in You - guess this is now split!
Unity, Donna Downey, Insightful Meadow
Much, much Glimmer Mist
Glimmer Glaze, Glimmer Glam
Claudine Helmuth - blue paint, gesso, multi-medium - if you haven't played with this stuff, you NEED to, it's VERY COOL!!!
Archival ink, jet black
Ranger gold paint dauber
random metal butterfly

There's glimmer glaze on the saying, so it was really interesting getting a pic of this one! LOL!

Have a fabulous Wednesday, and don't forget to leave a comment for a chance at a prize! :)
