A Wall Hanging With Crosses

texaswildJuly 18, 2008

Notice I didn't name it? This was totally LABOR. This is what comes from not having a vision or inspiration and just mosaicing just to be mosaicing. It's another Christmas gift for DD. Sorta geared toward her faith, love of her home, a little heart-shaped computer she gave me many, many years ago that died many years ago. The ankh is raised on a wooden plaque, and was a necklace I bought and wore while posted in Cairo. Lower right cross is mirror, the silver cross is from HobLob. Face of the angel is poly clay, her halo and wings are metal thingys from a hardware store in PV. The two tall things at top that flank the little house were in an estate sale box of mixed wooden objects - have no clue what their use was. Those are earrings on top of them. The little wooden house shape - garage sale stuff (windows were painted and covered w/clear glass. The image behind the gold frame was a gift from CRACKPOT ANNIE, covered w/smoky glass. This message is too long.

'morning, y'all. Up early for a change. Gonna take a junkin' trip to Shreveport today w/a friend. Thank y'all for the uplifting comments. This was a difficult piece. Where's the cheese??? Y'all sure know how to lift one's spirits. FLAG - that's the facing to the door I filled in to house tesserae in the workshop wall - one of the first projects when I started mosaicing - it is slowly getting grouted w/left overs. I'm almost finished grouting the left side. The right side may never even get glued. I lost interest on such a large project. Correction on the face of the angel - that was leftover grout in a little mold - not poly clay. Thanks again, y'all.

I LOVE this Slow AND I like the description...it's totally not too long, there is so much going on that you would have just had to answer all these questions anyways so a good description works for me!!!ha! I still haven't used any of those metal things from PV!!! I keep forgetting about them till I see you hauling them out, and then I go...Oh Ya, I got those too! All that weight to haul home and they are stashed somewhere!!!lol! DD will love this!

Thanks, y'all. I DO love mixed media. Didn't get much at the flea mkt. It was too hot to even focus on looking. Janey - you better pull those metal things out and use them. They're fun to work into any project.
