Day 161 More layered cards - Worldwide beauties #1

I got another package of printed sheets to do layered cards from my favorite store, the Craft Outlet.  The funnest part is you never know what the store will have. In this case, there was only one package. I could only see the top sheet and had to gamble on the other sheets. It was worth the $3 gamble.  I got pages and pages of different girls like this.  Here is the first.  What do you think it should say inside?

I went to Art Prize yesterday and I had already joined a rock painted group for western Michigan.  I want to have rocks to hide in the cite for Art Prize before I go back. Here is the first one.

This is another one of the cards with layers.  I got the layered sheets and just had to pop out the images and layer them.  The verse is inside.

Day 157 Hidden Peace

Here is a small canvas I worked on last night. I played with pigment powders and Gel mediums. I also had some metallic paints. I used some of the translucent Golden paints too.  The black was Dylusions acrylic paint.  This is my last challenge for the AALL & Create challenges.  I did them all! 


Since it is so metallic, the pictures don't do it justice. 


Then I added flowers to the picture. 


The word peace in several languages can be found on the flowers. 


Last I doodled on the black but it wasn't a pen or marker. It was done with a small paint brush.
