Shrine


Over at Out of a Hat Creations this week they have a fabulous theme of 'shrines'.  However, this did get me thinking as I don't have any ready made shrines!!!!  I wasn't really sure what I wanted to do or how I wanted to do it, so I just started playing with chipboard and the scallops on the edge die and basically came up with this.  I cut a rectangle out of the front piece to house the bottom of a small box which I painted with Fresco paints.  The feet on the bottom are cubes from a bobble!!  I'm not actually sure if this is a true shrine, but it's my version anyway!!

***Edited*** And this is it in daylight!!

Just terrific Sam and isn't it nice that you came up with something completely different and definitely all you own style.

Great that you joined in with us at the Hatters for this challenge.

I couldn't wait to see how you made it but to do that I needed to come upstairs to our main computer cause my i-pod won't show black backgrounds so that means I couldn't see the writing lol.

Love Chrissie xx

Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
