Jacob M Sciacchitano from Rockpointe Community Church in Sterling Heights, MI brings us this traditional-looking cross design.
From Jacob: After we had our string art design, we planned our next stage to match our Christmas Series called “The Mystery That Is Christmas” focused around the Trinity (Father, Spirit, Son) and used the Trinity Knot as inspiration.
Like most of my scaling projects, I have to design it small first and then project big so I made this template in photoshop using a combination of different inspirations online and came up with a template. Then I printed it on overhead transparency paper and traced with a white marker. After that was adding the outline in thicker acrylic paint.
The final result was pretty cool and the cross in the center was an old celtic cross we had built out of foam years ago. I would’ve added the cross with paint but we liked the 3d effect of having one there.
