That’s Crafty Collaboration

that's crafty

What an amazing week it has been with so much creativitiy and such unique projects. So now it’s my turn to showcase my piece.

I absolutly love the Visage set but never had the nerve to try and put something together. So when I got my Acrylic Wall Hanging from That’s Craft the creativity was just flowing. I loved how they teired down so why not keep in suit.

I used some alcohol inks on the substrate until I got the desired marble effect, something well aged and vintage. Using the Dresing Trim Silver Rosette to higlight the focal points  reminded me of something from Roman times with the “crowns of Laurel”.

During Roman times the Crowns were made with leaves of the bay laurel, and were worn as signs of victory and triumph. The Faces of the Visage are so masculine, with the crackle aged look it adds to that feeling of Roman Times.

The crisp background of Muslin and texture reminise the typical tunics and calceus (open toed sandles) on the back drop of aged marble.

As I look at this peice I  am reminded of lost roman treasures around the town of Cosenza in southern Italy that have been overlooked by time.
