Love Shrine Baby!

Some of my fellow DT members from when I was working for The Altered Element run a fabulous Altering Challenge blog called Alter It Monthly and I thought that I would join in with this months challenge which is Shrines, Nichos, Altars and Dream boxes.

I’ve made a little modern day mixed media Shrine for the month of LOVE

Made from paints, Kuretake products, tissues, tape and paper and a bit of old food packaging.

The main heart is embossed with ZIG Emboss Rich Red powder and stamped into. The little embossed cherubs where made with the Kurepunch medium Angel and the little hearts were punched with the Kurepunch small Funky Heart. 

All the gold colours you see where added with the ZIG Calligraphy Metallic markers and I added some extra sparkle on the little hearts with the ZIG Wink Of Stella. 

The tag was coloured using the ZIG Art and Graphic Twin pens and the little hearts and the tag are all floating as if by magic (ok – it’s ‘invisible’ thread) in the Magic Love Shrine.

Enjoy the month of Love!

Catch you later.

    Oh Kim, this is wondeful. When I first looked at it I was puzzled til I scrolled down to see what you had covered with tissue. Great shrine.
