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.
