I love mosaics, shrines and Moon imagery. Ta da! I’ve combined all three. Thanks to the fabulous contributors on Mixed Media Monday, Chris across the pond led me to Awfully Big Art Adventure – more art challenges, yea! This is their very first challenge, and it is a delicious one for me.
I’ve taken a plaster caste of a Crescent Moon man from a Swiss chocolate mold and painted him with acrylics and set him inside a shadow box. I then glued on handmade ceramic and polymer clay tiles, decorated with different paints, rubber stamps, jewelry findings and sparkley stars and store bought glass tiles. Inside the box I glued tiny lights from floral supplies, so when they are turned on they appear to be wee little stars.
Thank you for letting me share another project that brings me joy, michele
