It's Finished

Yes indeed, I got it done.  It's finished, all except for putting it into a frame.  I posted this background last week, on December 27, just below.  This was made for a friend of mine as a gift.  Actually, she requested it, and I was glad to oblige.  It will look much better in a frame, but I wanted to scan it rather than take a digital picture, and get it posted, so you can see how it progressed.  I'm happy with how it turned out, and love the background.  I'm really glad I started experimenting with this simple technic, which I explained in some posts below.

Beautiful Val, I adore the colors.
Whether you meant it or not, the fact that the words are not easily discerned, speaks to me of courage and faith not always seen either. Sometimes it takes effort.
Your friend should be thrilled.
