Ancient ages always brings to mind ( or mine anyway) the great Roman and Greek architecture. ( could be all that art history I took in school) And since the outer walls of the Roman Coliseum is made of travertine, that is what I chose for my background, or backstone (ooooh, booo! hiissss!)
I know that's bad, bad! I used 3 different sizes of travertine tiles, they total 6" high and 8" wide. I got to get out some of my favorite stamps for this project. They are from Beeswax, Frantic Stamper, Uptown Designs and MJ Barber. I did a few images then scrapped acrylic paint (from the tube type) over them, then stamped more images. When everything was pretty well set I used Tom Holtz Vintage Photo ink and aged the edges of each tile. They are mounted on a picture frame I had been meaning to throw away. Instead I painted the frame and hot glued the tiles to it, now it sits on a small easel here in my over crowded craft room. ;)
This particular piece of art is now only a memory on my blog. I had moved it to the spare bedroom and was cleaning, knocked it over and broke it! The tile made the front of the frame very front heavy, even though I had it on an easel.
Hope you can join us over at Elizabeth's blog for second looks at some very interesting art.....Why not join in the fun, while your there??
