I love what you did to finish it off, I think the crop looks beautiful on its own Smiley I'd love to know how you manage to get such a smooth finish using colouring pencils, do you use water to blend them?

Thank you very much, I used blending stumps, lot's of pressure and layering and I also use a blending pencil and white to blend everything. Hope that makes sense Smiley

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

Wow, that's beautiful, what a shame. I'm voting for incorporating the pieces into a larger, mixed media piece (easy on the media, more like a mosaic). If not then I'd go with the ACEO idea.

Oh, I see you've already finished it.

Maybe it's a sign to explore the fact that you always have more art inside you.  And/or that it is not about the product so much as the process.  If we look too long at what is behind us, we totally miss what is coming.  I once lost an unfinished novel when my computer went down.  Yes, I did the crying and cursing thing, but then I had to think about why it happened.  What is the lesson, the blessing, the message?  You are a different person, with different things to express now than you were when you did that.  Maybe the break happened to help you break with something in your life that you were trying to hold onto like you're trying to hold onto this piece.  Maybe if you discover/realize what that was, you can keep the piece as is, broken, as a symbol of this growth.
