GSL Cuts: Trilogy Triptych-A Peek-a-Boo Project

This is Jon David Lowe for  Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts, Growing up Baptist I was often confounded by the Trilogy-the three in one-Father, Son and Holy Spirit-I never could understand how one entity could be three different manifestations.  I can understand a person having different ways of acting in various situations. In the end for me it did not really matter, but I have always loved triptychs when I saw them in museums. I also find that many wonderful things come in threes, they are the inspirations for this artwork.

1.  Gather Materials.

2.  Resize Images of Your Liking and Print.

3.  Use Art Folk Design Creme-Gold, TCW-Stencil Butter-Turquoise and Black Embossing Paste and a Paintbrush To Paint Top Portion of GSLC Arabian Triptych Frame.

4.  Use a Pen and Back Portion of GSLC Arabian Triptych Frame to Trace the Portion of the Printed Images.

5.  Cut Out Images.

6.  Use a UHU Gluestick to Glue Images to Back Portion of GSLC Arabian Triptych Frame.

7.  Use Weldbond to Glue Top Portion of GSLC Arabian Triptych Frame to Back Portion.

8.  Press Weighted and Flattened Down.

9.  When Fully Dry add Ranger Glossy Accents , When Dry it Will Appear as Glass.

10.                Use Double Sided Tape and a Length of Recycled Silk Sari Ribbon to Connect Triptych Together.

Some Final Thoughts.

As stated wonderful  things come in threes. The Primary Colors-Red, Yellow, and Blue-Three Ring Circus-Three Little Pigs-the Three Stooges-Three French Hens-The Billy Goats Gruff-Three Sheet to the Wind-Three Piece Suits-Tricycles- Big Wheels-The Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria-Three Blind Mice-3-D-On your Mark, Get Set, Go-Of the People, By the People, For the People-Up, Up and Away- Hear no Evil, Speak no Evil, see no Evil-Strongest Geometric Shape-Harry, Hermione, and Ron-the Rule of Three-Rock, Paper, Scissors-BLT-Shamrocks…Can you think of any others?

What would Christmas be without the Three Wisemen sometimes called Kings.

We Three Kings?

We three kings of Orient are;
bearing gifts we traverse afar,
field and fountain, moor and mountain,
following yonder star.


O star of wonder, star of light,
star with royal beauty bright,
westward leading, still proceeding,
guide us to thy perfect light.


Born a King on Bethlehem’s plain,
gold I bring to crown him again,
King forever, ceasing never,
over us all to reign.


Frankincense to offer have I;
incense owns a Deity nigh;
prayer and praising, voices raising,
worshiping God on high.


Myrrh is mine; its bitter perfume
breathes a life of gathering gloom;
sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying,
sealed in the stone-cold tomb.


Glorious now behold him arise;
King and God and sacrifice:
Alleluia, Alleluia,
sounds through the earth and skies.


I love Tori Amos’ retelling of the story in her song, Star of Wonder. Give it a listen if you have never heard it before.
