Mixed media Sanctuary by Celise McLaughlin
I took this photo on one of my early morning bike rides to the grounds of an Anglican church situated on the banks of the Waccamaw River. The old, now defunct, guest house behind the church is my favorite quiet place. It sits quietly under the huge 100-year old live oaks dripping with Spanish moss.
I printed the photo on tissue paper to use as my focal point. I used acrylics to blend with the photo to make it seamless. On the stencils I used embossing paste, the words signify a prayer and spider webs its age.
