So it's been a looooooooong time since I've posted anything on Craftster, but I had always hoped to come back. I got hit with some really serious issues a while back that I had to deal with (and am still dealing with, though they've died down a bit now), and the energy it took to deal with all of it and still take care of myself zapped everything out of me. In short, I was depressed, and found after it blew over that I was unable to create much of anything. I can't say I was surprised, but I let myself rest for a bit before deciding to kick my own butt back into gear, and so of course the first thing I turned to to help me do that was to my faith.

So these are the first two projects I've finished in a long time. I've always loved triptychs, and decided to put this one together to decorate my (already pretty crowded) altar. It was made from some cheap craft wood panels I found at Michaels, lots of paint, glitter, buttons, mirrors, and some ribbon. I'm thinking about adding some more glitter in a few places, but I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out, so I'm going to wait a bit and think on it.



The middle panel:


Goddess panel:

You can't really tell in the photos, but I used metallic paint for some of it--the purple and gold colors, and I LOVE the way it gleams!

God panel:

I was going to outline both of them, but I like the way it looks without lining better.

In action:


I also did a pentagram to put up on the wall. Currently it's sitting above my craft desk, but I may move it in the future.



It felt really, really good to finish something after such a long break. Now the main problem I have is that I'm getting all these project ideas and have nowhere near enough time to finish them. Just like old times!

Glad to hear you're doing better and the creativity is flowing again. I agree that coming back to creating after not doing so for a while is very satisfying (I'm experiencing that currently as well)! I really love what you've made, especially the beaded pentagram. Wrapping the beads all around the form like that is just so unique and gives it a great look. ^^
