When I read this week’s theme ‘Incognito’
my mind immediately acted as a Thesaurus and turned it into
(so sorry, Sharon)
I started with an old key box hanger thingy,
I tore out the inside, sanded, and repainted it.
Took out the front panel and decopaged a picture
of Murillo’s painting The Immaculate Conception
(yup, sometimes I cut up my beloved books)
I had good vintage wood frame that I sanded and repainted.
I cut a piece of wood to fit and cut a hole in that
to fit the key box.
Then it was time to make the tiles.
59 of them.
There are also some glass beads, a copper crown,
a vintage earring and some text from a Mass Book.
Finally the ‘concealed’ part.
A hymn to Mary that I remember singing.
See the ancient Bible pages?
From a German Bible Leo bought for me,
the pages have a patina you just can’t imitate.
Wee crystals and a hand carved
Holy Mother from my collection.
All she needed was a base.
So there it is,
I hope you liked my journey
I only wish I had taken pictures along the way.
Happy, Happy Sunday!
Oh, I put a link on my side bar to
She has a Super Sale happening.
