I bought some mini shrines and have been having quite a bit of fun with them -- here is a love shrine for Valentine's Day. The words are from a poetry book -- the author I don't know at this point.  I created the background paper from old sheet music, paint and gold Perfect Pearl dust. The heart is a wooden button with gold filigree wings.
Front:


And on the reverse, just a fancy red/gold embossed paper:


Thanks for looking! Happy Valentine's Day!

The time has come
The walrus said
To talk of many things-
Of shoes and ships and sealing wax-
Of cabbages and kings.
And why the sea is boiling hot
And whether pigs have wings.

Thank you very much! I made that paper a while ago and then hoarded it --I decided it was time to do something with it finally. Grin
