Decorate my life - Unity Blog Hop



Hi there..welcome back to another inspiration Thursday....it's time to hop with the Unity girls!

Today we have a wonderful new release...this sweet little guy !  I gave him a cold snowy background since he was so well layered and all warm and toasty! It feels so nice to be painting wintery scenes again!



After watercoloring the image, I applied some glittery stickles and glossy accents to the heart. For the background, I applied an extremely wet wash of blue/black and sprinkled some salt while it was still wet to get that mottled effect. once everything was dry, I splattered some white paint over the entire picture.


This stamp is part of a promotion this weekend..a shirt and a stamp!



a closer look...


We have TWO amazing Unity filled prize packages to giveaway.  Leave a comment on EACH blog in the hop (including the Unity blog) for your chance to win.  The winners will be announced Saturday night on the Unity blog.


Happy Hopping!
