Madonnas and Motherhood

I used a stretched canvas to create the shrine, boxed feel of the piece.  I painted all surfaces of the canvas, front and back, with acrylic paints.  I then used Modge Podge to affix the photographs and other flat, paper images to the interior of the canvas.  I then added texture by using crackle paste, molding paste, and garnet gel.  After, I did several layers of acrylic glazes.  The tiles around the edge were glued down, along with the statues, shells, and flowers.  I folded rice paper along the interior, creating a draped cloth look, and finished with a UV clear spray.
