Spotlight on: Art Shrines
|Share the love...||
Most of us are probably familiar with what a shrine is, but what about an art shrine? Art shrines are art tributes to a person, place, theme or idea. They’re usually three dimensional, but can also be flat.
If you look in the Craftster tag cloud you’ll find shrine is pretty popular in these parts! And there are shrines for every taste here.
You can find shrine bases at various craft suppliers, but then some use Altoid tins or even matchboxes as a base to build in. Most shrines created are often in 5, 3 or even 1 inch sizes. This takes miniature crafting to a whole new level.
Look at all the little books in there that even have the titles on the spine!
The clown has strings like a marionette. Very cool idea.
Amazing how she even made sure you could still open the matchbox drawer and put stuff in there as well.
This shrine is a tribute to her grandparents love and marriage. Using sentimental items she created this lovely keepsake.
Art shrines open the door for fun, homage and creativity. Hope you will be inspired to try your hand a art shrines, and post your project here for us to enjoy.
