Craft Barn Q&L Challenge.

Happy New Year To One and All.
The Craft Barn has a new challenge for 2014, you can check out the challenge and other fabulous entries HERE.  What is Q&L I hear you ask, its Quotes & Lyrics.  And to kick of 2014, there first Q&L is to create a piece of art work using a quote or song lyrics with SMILE and/or UP.  I've decided to create a series of affirmation cards, I'm trying out 3"x4" for size, we'll see how I get on.  My quote

"Peace starts with a Smile" by Mother Teresa

Any excuse to use my buddha stamp.  The base has been built up with layers of old text, maps, music sheet papers then gesso'd and finally coloured with chalk pastels.  The Buddha was stamped onto tissue paper and then applied with Golden matte medium.
