I made this Frida Kahlo shrine for woobie in the Shrine Swap

 

The base is a mini chalk board I got from erica_tattoos in a private swap we did last year.  It worked out perfectly because I wanted to make a hanging shrine.

 

Everything for this literally came together by just digging through my bins of stash.  I really like how it turned out, plus it was my first officially completed shrine!







Thanks for being my partner and inspiring this project, woobie!  Smiley

I love it!  This is the perfect example of why crafters need to hoard collect a lot of stuff, so when you are ready to create something, everything is already on hand.  Nice work!

That's just what I was thinking!! Thanks for helping to justify my hoarding instincts Smiley. This is a great shrine.

It's wonderful. I think Frida would have been proud. I love the red heart. And the textiles. I don't think I could keep from touching this a lot. Cheesy
