Hi all,

I am trying to finish this shrine and I'm having trouble coming up with what else I should put in it. As you can see from the picture I have some shells and a message in a bottle. Any ideas what else? I thought of fish, but I don't know how they would look with the octopus  Undecided

You could decorate the back a bit more with waves and any of the above to give it more depth...then put in your 3-dimensional stuff as suggested above:  driftwood, coral, more shells, maybe some netting, and definitely fish...the octopus looks great so far..it will be a lovely shrine!

Lovely so far! I think the driftwood idea is great. Maybe some bubbles coming from behind the shells, just so you know something is behind there, but not what Smiley
