baCk tO sChooL

Had fun creating this little journal...sometimes it is so fun to create as if you are still a little kid. I mean c'mon...who doesn't still love the smell of a fresh new box of crayolas!! Crayons, pipe cleaners,construction paper, paste (not just for eating anymore), um anyways...wouldn't it be great to create a whole series of altered art pieces using material/ mediums we used in kindergarten?! Hmmm.....didn't I just throw away that empty toilet paper right back. ;)

A Mighty Fortress is Our God

Happy 40th Birthday to my Dear Husband. This piece is my artistic interpretation of his favorite hymn A Mighty Fortress is Our God by Martin Luther. I created an assemblage of treasured found objects from my porch, beautiful discarded hymn and book covers, and my favorite photo of my husband. Kev and I love the words of this hymn, words of God's strength and protection and Christ's victory for eternity.

This is also the first large assemblage piece I have done, and I must do more! I am contemplating other beautiful hymns that would lend themselves to my assemblage art.
