Another gorgeous piece Lisa. I am a layer and texture hound and that is one thing that always draws me to your work, all the lovely texture and layers you work with so well. I can tell you are enjoying your FM foot. :-) I'm anxious to get back to mine...so many things in the way of creating right now.
