Finally get to share!

I'm REALLY excited to share this project with you.  It is something I dreamed up quite awhile ago and then have spent the last 6 months, on and off (ok more off than on) working on it.  Our new house has a really nice space above fire place that just needed a piece of art.  I hatched the idea to quill some sort of art piece.  My husband has always had an interest in Buddhism and I think images of the Buddha are very beautiful so I came up with the idea to quill the Buddha sitting under a tree during the full moon.  This is when the Buddha reached enlightenment.  I used quilled cardstock and Mod Podge for the tree and the Buddha.  For the background I used Glimmer Mist, October Afternoon Mists, Smooch Spritz in various colors.  For the stars I used Crystal Stickles.  I just used a circle mask to make the moon while misting the background.  I feel like this is art so I went ahead and gave it a name ;)   It's titled "Enlightenment of the Buddha".  I hope you enjoy looking at it.
