ABAA & also Lots to Do - Metal
Apologies for combining two challenges in one but my week has been so hectic.
This is my entry for Awfully big art adventure and also Lots to do - Metal challenges.
For ABAA - The challenge was to make a milagro, I dont seem to be able to move away from canvas work right now, im enjoying it. So my milagro is a heart , as all hearts need to heal at times and faith can sometimes be hard to keep when your life travels down certain roads.
For Lots to do - The challenge was to include metal, the small heart charm is metal and also the cross on the end of the rosary that Our Lady holds.
Both images were printed in black and white and the i used blue embossing powder on Our Ladys robe, the beads on her rosary i highlighted with stickles glitter glue to make the beads stand out. The quote reads " Dont lose Faith, the answer is there somewhere" and the word faith is grungeboard coloured with brown acrylic paint.
The large heart is made with a mixture of angelina fibres over the top of a heart shaped rubber stamp.
I am pleased with my canvas and each time my faith wavers i will look at this to help me along. Thank you for visiting my blog.
