Creative Expressions Shrine Sample #1



What's happening its Thursday ??


Yeah, yeah, I know its Thursday but I wanted to show you these samples I made using MDF Shrines cut by Lisa Horton for                     Creative Expressions.
My plan is to put one on tonight one tomorrow and one Saturday.
The top picture shows the front and centre picture, I wrapped the entire shrine in comic book paper and painted the interior black to accentuate the contents and the front face of the shrine. Then I added a bingo counter to the centre of a bottle cap and stuck this to the apex of the front face. Inside the shrine I placed the old die-cast jaguar, Monopoly piece, Scrabble tile and Howzat dice. On the outside I attached a couple of pieces of hardware in the form of a little door handle and a bookplate finally I added the Boy's room text ( deliberately spelled wrong just to get comments and open a dialogue ) the last thing to do, was to cut a couple of phrases from the comic book and stick these on. All done.










The stand is made from the recycled base of a figurine painted with cosmic shimmer gilding polish topped off with a couple of wooden bobbins covered with mini 4 x 4 tyres which I thought looked quite cool.

I have tried to show you all the angles to give you an idea of the end effect. The pictures don't do the finished article full justice

Don't forget to check out the other pieces, later in the week.

  1. I've treated myself to one of these shrines after seeing yours last week. I really like the boy theme you used on this one - still undecided on what to do with mine!!
