[7.17.2014] unity thursday – hello gorgeous

Hello Gorgeous

Time for some more THURSDAY fun with the Unity design team.  If you haven’t been hopping along, all the action starts on the Unity blog.  There’s always fun stuff going on.

Did you all see the brand new stamp of the week?

Isn’t it darling?  I just love the combination of sunflowers and the antique milk can.  Country at it’s best.


See what I mean?  That milk can full of sunflowers is absolutely FABULOUS!  I’m pretty thrilled with my Copic coloring this round.  I’m slowly getting better at creating contrast between my shading colors.  I’m not as scared to go darker in my shading which most images need in order to create depth.  *big grin*

Don’t forget to leave a comment on each blog today.
We’ll be giving away 2 prizes from comments left on the participating blogs.

Here are all the girls hopping today…  just click on the next pretty girl in line.
