The Art of Mary...

For the last year I have been collecting interesting art work of Mary and the different Madonna's that I like. I have finally altered a book and put them into the pages.
The book is an encyclopedia that was ornate and I added a Little metal frame with glass.


I have a few inset windows and arch doorways.

Some pages I added paper and some I stained.



Lots of shading and gold edging.















It turned out very heavy but a beauty. Each time I alter a book I learn more about the do's and do nots. This one went without a hitch. Thanks for looking.
