a Shrine to the Holy Mother and Mushrooms...

Happy Mother's Day to all of you wonderful and loving mothers! May your day be fill with love, art and happiness.
I've created a reliquary shrine to a rather well know Mother for this special day.
I painted a vintage plastic icon to look aged and enshrined her in a wonderful House Shrine Box Kit from Alpha Stamps. I love the way she looks set off by the papers from the Junque Gypsy collection.
I didn't stop there though...
To the back of the shrine I added a sacred heart reliquary I made with the fabulous new Relic & Artifacts Casts designed by Sandra Evertson for Prima. I'm totally in LOVE with Sandra's collection so you will be seeing lots of these used in my upcoming projects. I used Golden Liquid Acrylics to paint the heart and hand and they take the paint like a dream. Also featured in this reliquary is the new Castle Towers Reliquary - Single from Alpha Stamps.
Since Spring is slowly taking root around here I've been thinking of mushrooms...
I made this little fairy house shrine using a plastic mushroom that I added a door to and painted.
Last but certainly not least I made three potted mushrooms because mushrooms are just so cheerful and make me happy.
The fairy house shrine and mushrooms are available in my Etsy shop here, but the Holy Mother Shrine has already been claimed by a friend.
Thanks for stopping by and sharing a bit of your day with me. Here's a free image to use in your own mushroom art...

Love the Mary statue in the shrine. Did you have it or can I find it somewhere on line. Beautiful work.

Thanks for the wonderful comments ladies. @Diane D. The Madonna statue is a vintage plastic one I got on eBay years ago.
