I have been gathering Madonna statues, religious icons, pictures of Saints and angels and even dashboard Marys for quite some time and I am the least religious person you could ever meet! For some unknown reason they have been calling to me and I decided to use those images in this month's altar.
The image is from a tiny (2x3 inch) book on angels. I cut her out, removing her wings because I wanted her to be the Saint of Art.
I made her halo out of a vintage watch face and used 1/4 inch foam sticky tabs to raise the image up off the background paper.
I like the shadows and depth this gives it.
I added some gold and purple sparkle to her neckline, because even Saints like their bits of glitter!!
Mini scrabble tiles for the word ART- and her finger pointing at it just in case you didn't get it.
She's my kind of Saintly figure...Beth
