I decided to use scrap pieces of leftover paper and do a patchwork "quilt" inside the glass on each shelf. Then I'm going to be adding photos....or rather photo collages to the "frames" that were made by the paper. I've got a couple of them started. This one is 2 photos, one of mom, the other of dad, that I have always loved. I scanned them in, merged them, then changed them to black and white. I just love it!
On the lower left, I covered a little mini book with leather and stamped the letters "BIBLE on the front, then inked up the leather. Inside are lots of verses from scripture. On the lower right, I tore up a card that mom had painted on and made a tiny little collage of flowers, broken bits of jewelry and velvet leaves.
They taught me how to study so many things. Religion, art, life. They taught me 2 Tim 2:15 "you-be-diligent yourself to-stand-along-side approved to-the God, (a) workman unashamed, cutting-straight the word of-the truth." (A Consistent New Testament - Mount Publications where hyphenated words are read as one word)... in the KJV: Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
