title of this piece is a nod to my former junior high crush, jon bon jovi, and although livin' on a prayer was not my favorite bon jovi song, it seemed an appropriate fit for this collage. collage print created with a bevy of antique papers and featuring a rather beatific image of the virgin mary, surely dreaming of her favorite rockstar, floating ethereally above a hand written prayer that reads...
"My father hear my prayer before I go to rest, It is thy little child that cometh to be blessed, Forgive me all my sins and let me sleep this night, In safety and in peace, Until the morning light"...
good night & sweet dreams bloggy friends!
this photo is really not capturing this canvas as well as i'd like, but i'm the WORST photographer ever ;D so for now this is the best i could do....that's why i love my scanner so, but my scanner wasn't doing so hot with this either...so you're subjected to my supremely deficient photograpy skills...8x10 collaged, gallery wrapped canvas, i wanted to try and create a little patchwork quilt of old paper with one of my ledger collages as the focal point, papers include antique ledger paper, wallpaper, and bits and scraps from an antique scrapbook...entire piece is sealed and sides are finished with bits and pieces of antique papers.
i'll be writing more later, busy like a bee filling orders, happy sunday!
