That Craft Place Shrine Project.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

Back today to show you how I've been using those gorgeous shrines I showed you last week. If you missed them you can see them here.

So which one to work on first ???
Well this is what I made.

I kept looking at this one and the  top kind of reminded me of waves!
So that's were I started.
The shrines arrive like this: flat.
You could put them together before starting but I chose to paint them with Gesso first as the edges where going to be painted.
You need to try and avoid too much paint round the tabs or it can be difficult to push them in.
Next stage to paint the edges. I used a mixture of these two paints as I wanted the colour to match the papers I had planned to use.
Graphic 45 Beneath the Sea collection!
I used the smaller size which fitted better with this shrine.
Once the paint was dry, I attached the background papers and started to put the shrine together.

If you want a nice neat edge just sand gently which will remove any excess paper.

Glazing and dewdrops gave the watery effect.

I used some Sizzix dies to create the seaweed.
I also found some little plastic shells threaded together with cord and painted those with alcohol ink.
You can see them just at the bottom left.
Edges next.
These papers are perfect for this.

And the finished Shrine.
They are a bit like a small shadow box.
The Front.

And the Back.

I used one of the pockets and tags for the back and more Dew Drops, then finished the whole thing off by splattering on White pebeo Artist Marker. They are so juicy that you can tap them on your hand and the colour just splatters onto your work. They come in different sizes too and other colours.

If you like the Shrines, they are available here at That Craft Place.

Hope you enjoyed the visit.
Happy crafting,
Angela xXx

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:
That's Crafty Challenge Blog: The Sea Challenge

This mood board so reminded me of the shining sea and the colour scheme was perfect so just had to enter my little shrine.
