Mixed Media Monday - Layers




Hi Everyone,

Every once and a while Coco wanted to just be herself....she was always trying so hard to please everyone...but under all her layers...she was just a happy girl....a happy girl who wanted to live her dreams and not anyone else's dreams.....

Here's to shedding all the layers and just being yourself Coco....and then there's cakes with many layers....yumm!!!

I logged on today and checked out the theme on MMM and at first I thought...layers...what am I going to do for layers....then the first thing that came to me was to create a lady in a lady in a lady.....multiple layers....then I started to draw and Coco came to life....I hope you enjoy her....


and for all my wonderful blog friends...a nice slice of layers!!!


Hugs

Diana

Somehow your blog always makes me want cake! Is that Tiramisu with the lady fingers and expresso? Yum! I can't make it, but I can eat it!

Wow, Diana - what a clever interpretation of the challenge :-) Also wish I could get a hold of that layer cake, grin! Wonderful and imaginative work! Diane

Thanks for the virtual cake!! What a great way of losing weight. Yours looks good enough to eat. I love the story of Coco, woman of many layers but just a simple, happy girl underneath. Great work.

I love the idea of being able to shed the layers that can hold us back from achieving our dreams. Coco is very brave and strong. Nice work! :)

Coco is wonderful and I like the word you wrote I believe that we all have different layers like Coco.

Astrid Maclean said...

She looks just great and I LOVE the thought behind it, we all have so many layers. I adore the way she peeps out from behind hers and so courageously pushes them aside :o)

It is so nice that you always can think of something whatever theme....!
Coco is nice and she reminds me of my layers. Layers can bring you into trouble.
Way to go Coco!
