Greatest Name Mosaic

~Greatest Name Mosaic~
Medium: Mixed- Acrylics, paper, micro beads and diamond glaze on stretched canvas.

I was in Micheals the other day and saw this oval canvas and was instantly inspired to paint the Greatest Name on it.
The Greatest Name is a symbol of the Baha'i Faith. Translated it means 'O Glory of Glories'.
For the border I glued segments of printed cardstock directly onto the canvas. Then I filled the gaps between the cardstock with diamond glaze and dumped micro beads into the glue. After this dried I pooled diamond glaze onto the cardstock for a glassy look.
I painted the center cream and added the Greatest Name in deep purple.
