GIU Day 3, Your Own Kind of Beautiful

Welcome to day 3 of my Growing in Unity week!
Every day this week I'm posting a new project using Unity stamps.
At the end of the week, I'll choose 2 random commenters from my posts who will receive 25 random stamps from Unity. So comment every day here on my blog to maximize your chances to win.

Today I have yet another art journal page.

 I stamped the image from Mystical Mermaid. I covered it with masking fluid. Then sprayed a some blue and purple spray inks. After they dried, I sprinkled water and let it dry again. Then I removed the masking fluid and painted the mermaid with a waterbrush and distress inks.


The sentiment is from the imperfection is beauty set.

I finished off the page with white ink splatters on top and black splatters on the bottom.


Thanks for stopping by. See you again tomorrow.

The mermaid has always been one of my favorite stamps. You have really captured the energy of the ocean which you created for her.

I've never used spray ink before, but I love the effect of that plus the water droplets. I think going to have to try this technique. πŸ’™
