A couple of months ago I asked Don to make a cross for me. I had the idea of making a mosaic to reproduce a cross I saw a while back in an antique shop but I only got as far as staining it. The stained cross pictured here is the base layer of what is evolving into a three layered cross.
When I caved and finally joined Pinterest, my explorations introduced me to some creative inspiration for the cross. I tried different things with my various bits and bobs of broken jewelry and other ephemera but nothing clicked. Then a few days ago I found myself at Michael’s and found the perfect unfinished cross to create a layered look. As I left, I spotted a little wood heart, also unfinished.
The three of them together now make the foundation for Step Two of my painted cross project. Once I decide on colors, I’ll get it started. But where I’m concerned with all things creative, this one will no doubt continue to steep for a while.
