Growing In Unity Day 3

Hi friends and a very happy Wednesday to you! Today is day 3 of my GIU week and I'm enjoying it so much! Your comments have been so kind and thoughtful! They mean the world to me so I just wanted to say thank you for that! And now for today's Unity inspiration!
I created another mixed media art canvas using one of my all-time favorite Suzi Blu stamps, Love Yourself. First, I laid down color with Gelatos, then I stamped the girl onto white tissue paper and glued her to the canvas board with Mod Podge. Her lips and the tiny heart were colored in with red marker and bit of blue on the flowers she's holding. 
I also stamped with different floral and background stamps with white and black inks for added interest and depth. These are all Unity stamps, however some of them are vintage from way back in 2008/09 when I was on Angela's original design team. What a dream come true that time was for me and what a blessing it still is to have so many wonderful and unique Unity stamps. 
Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop by and see my project today! I hope you've enjoyed it and I hope you will leave a comment below for your chance to win an awesome Unity prize at the end of this week! Have a great day and happy crafting!

WOW, I am totally in love with this beautiful piece of art!
I think I would love to make something similar for each of my three
nieces. They all love to make cards, but I'd love to introduce them
to canvas art.

Neat canvas :) I've never used gelatos but I love the look of the background so I'll have to give them a try!!

Another great work of art! That focal stamp is so cute, but I also like how you added the mixed variety of other stamps around her. Really like all of the embellishments too!

Beautiful canvas! I hadn't thought of stamping images onto tissue paper and then gluing them onto other projects. Brilliant!
