Asian Shrine


Over at the PaperArtsy Blog the fabulous Linda Cain is back sharing her inspiration once again.  For her third technique she has used a shrine from the fab Retro Cafe Art, but I didn't have one of these, so I made my own from the rectangles and mini pocket watch movers and shapers dies and the pediments TH Sizzix die.  Together with my fresco paints and grunge paste I also had to use an image from my brand new LP #22 stamp plate, picked up at the weekend from Ally Pally.


To get the depth I used loads and loads of 3d foam!!


And just to prove that it does stand up!! I used treasure gold on the pediments, top and bottom, also used ink and the dog and urban snapshot stamp plates.

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.
