Bad things can strengthen you

Today I have a 8x10 mixed media board to show you. I used lots of acrylic paints, paper, stamps, washi tape and modeling paste. I absolutely love it. I think so far this is my favorite.

 
When something bad happens you have three choices:
You can either let it define you.
Let it destroy you or you can let it strengthen you.
 
As you can see there are lots of layers. It's one of those pieces that just came together but it took many days to finish.  I find that if I work on layers it's better to walk away and come back to it.  I also see things differently and it always changes my ideas.  This one was going to be many different things but I found the die cut window and my creatively took over.
 
Here it is in a frame.
 
 
Please leave me a comment on what you think about it. I would love to hear what you have to say.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by!
 
PS Norma from Little Honey Bee Studios gave me a blog award. I will be posting my answers to her questions soon.

  2. Hi! I followed your link on Life Book and was just browsing around when I had to stop and comment on how much I absolutely adore this piece. I'm love the yummy texture and saturated color. Can I ask- what is the stencil? I like to walk away from things too, and then come back (plus, it allows the layers to dry lol) Anyway- beautiful piece!
