"Diabetes warrior" Mixed Media Canvas Tutorial feat. Sweet Escape Digis!

Hey everyone it's Elina here and Happy Friday & St. Patrick's Day to you all!
Today's post features a deeply personal project I created using a digi from Sweet Escapes Digis.
I have colored a ton of images over the years but this is the first time I colored one to look like me.
With grey hairs, glasses and an infusion set for an insulin pump.
I then decided to create an inspirational canvas that reflects who I am.
A Type 1 insulin dependent Diabetic and I have been battling this disease for 20 years.
And I will continue to 
battle this disease with everything I have and with the loving support of my family.
There is a tutorial up on my channel showing you how I created this piece.
