Prayer shrine

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI made this pin and put Mary in the charm, Back in the old days they would take photos of the love one for the inside and place a lock of hair ,  first communion medal , holy medals , or prayer beads. And placed On the back a prayer card or tribute. I used my parents cards from the funeral home. I took apart the left hand side and used the cardboard insert inside and placed a small bit of fiber stuffing {like used for stuffing teddy bears} and covered the board with yellow felt, I didn’t have any velvet.made a brooch to place in it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAthen I added the photo of Mary to the right side and put the glass back on it, and glued my trinkets to the glass with E600 glue

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAPainted the outline braid on the frame GOLD.. and some of the words metals were silver so O painted them gold, to match.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAPainted the outline gold,and Cut the large square triangle into corner pieces and glued on.And added the key for center …

Glue a couple pages together for extra strength also helps when you  apply the gesso, OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMake sure the Gesso is dry before doing your next set of pages.you can leave a couple pages without Gesso and glue water color paper or other types of paper for you art journal, what ever you want to do, as long as you have fun doing it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAyou could even add photo paper and use those Inks you ve been wanting to try. LOL….

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA I trimmed the extra paper from the sides. and made it all look even.  Then I tore some green paper and glued to USED DRYER SHEET.  Next I Painted the sky blue, and watered down the paint.Dabbed it with paper towel to give it lighter puffy cloud look. made some knot stitch flowers of yellow and some of blue.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAnext I added Shimmer to grass blades, with watered down Pearl Ex powder.next I sewed the glass green beads on , for a flowery look.And the Yellow flowers got a golden stem of gold thread..

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThen I added my tree which is made from Sisal Twine,I untwisted it and pulled apart and finger painted it with black and Brown Acrylic paints. also made a nest also with Twine used more paint and added yellow for a slight tinge of color change on the nest. cut and glued branches in place. and tree. added a 3d puff behind the bird. {The Bird was a gift from a swap came with a bunch of die cuts from CANDY LOWEKE.. Which a big thank you for this … Love them….
