My partner in the Random Swap requested an altered item of some sort.  I had been wanting to play with shrine design for a while so I ordered up a few supplies and two new collage sheets and dug through my stash to come up with this.  I painted the inside bits of the shrine and used scrapbook paper to cover the back and outside of the shrine.  I used Distress Inks on the edges of all the paper and on the tag on the back. I really hope she liked it!

I am not a huge fan of yellow either, but it is very summery and happy!  I think the yellow looks fabulous with the greens and blues...

Lovely work, lindyv321! Especially like the distressed ink at the paper edges. Now I'm dreaming of summer too!

Wow, I'd have a hard time parting with that one. I love yellow and green together. Cute birdy theme!
