Mojo Monday

Welcome to another Mojo Monday and today I thought I would share with you Cameo's.
I love these and think that they look so Shabby Chic. They are also really good fun to have a go at doing yourself too and make them into pictures.


Cameo is a method of carving an object such as an engraved gem, item of jewellery or vessel made in this manner. It nearly always features a raised (positive) relief image; contrast with intaglio, which has a negative image. Originally, and still in discussing historical work, cameo only referred to works where the relief image was of a contrasting colour to the background; this was achieved by carefully carving a piece of material with a flat plane where two contrasting colours met, removing all the first colour except for the image to leave a contrasting background.

All pictures from Pinterest

You can always have a go at making your own Cameo out of paper. All you need to do is take a photo side view and then print it out. Next you need to cut around the face, last of all you need to trace around onto coloured paper and cut out. Simple :0)

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed
