Finished the painting for the background and assembled all the layers. She is now available unframed on Etsy and framed at art shows or on request.

I had all the decades put together on these, was just waiting for new crucifixes and centers. So here we have:
Red tigereye (8x6mm flattened ovals):
Dyed rhodonite (6x8MM slightly flattened globes):
Striped jasper (dyed, 4mm):
This evening I also just finished a chinese rainbow jasper 6mm one that I was THISCLOSE to keeping myself, that is how much I love the way it turned out! Finished it too late for decent lighting, so I will have to try to get it photographed tomorrow.
Edition 2/3. Going fancier on this one- 11x14, triple-layer, and watercolor background.
Angel (layer 1) about 2/3 cut:

This was the first piece of this type that I have done. It is 4 layers- a white watercolor paper cut layer for the top, a painted layer directly beneath the turtle, freehand-cut waves from royal blue cardstock, then a final watercolor painting below that. Whew! Lots of fun to construct, and I am really happy with how it turned out!
