A Cameo...

I've been thinking on the latest big Moxie Fab Challenge for quite awhile now, you can find it right HERE.  The call was to create a cameo in an innovative way.  Like Cath, I do remember my grandmother wearing a beautiful brooch in which the cameo was two tone coral.  It was exquisite.  I know many people love to collect these miniature works of art. And of course, those of us a certain age probably remember sitting for a silhouette that went home to hang in the bedroom wing hallway.  I pondered on all these ideas before going to my studio to blank paper and inks.  Funny where the muse will lead, if you are patient.


And so here is my take on The Appearance of Cameos Challenge in the Moxie Fab World




I'll bet almost everyone will recognize the silhouette  and instantly have an image of Da Vinci's most famous painting smiling at them.  While my talents do not include carving gems to create intricate portraits, I hope you will see the beauty in your face and let YOUR art wash away the dust.

Thanks for stopping by....

Amazing indeed Susan. Love it. You sure have a way with art. I can of course see my face in this...that would be a blast being that I have quite a Mona Lisa smile. LOL

Glad you got the card and enjoy it. The stamps I thought would be in your liking and style too. So happy I was right. Hugsxo Peggy
