Isn't it amazing the things we keep? Now why on earth did I keep this? Given to me at school in 1961....but it's just one of those things I cannot throw away. Why? Well, I remember the excitement and anticipation of waiting for this Bible. It was like you were getting "promoted".....the adults trusted you with a Bible....it was your very own....you had to take care of it....it was a passing of age. And I remember waiting anxiously for that day to arrive....when they handed out our Bibles in school.
So rather than keep it tucked away in a box, I decided I wanted to add it to my wall of art. Is this wall ever going to be done? LOL! Well, all I can say is that I am having a great time pulling out things that have special meaning....that I think will inspire me to create even better art....and that will be a joy for others who come to visit.
I took apart a clear acrylic frame, made a new back using chipboard. The little angel is a Lenox ornament and she fit just inside the Gideon Seal - so the gold sort of looks like a halo.
It is old, worn, and falling apart. So I must have read it a lot. I remember taking it to school with me every day for the rest of that year. How fun to take something so precious from my past and add it to a wall that I will look at every day. My wall of ART - you're going to want to make one for yourself!!!
