This is my first shrine.
The print at the top is a quote from Frida Kahlo: "Feet, why do I need them if I can fly?"




This is the inside view.

 



I was thrilled to find two El  Corazon loteria cards that had opposite pics, I like how the arrows point towards the center. The main pic is behind glass, and attached with some E6000 are my famous hoo-ha's (sequins and glitter). Everything I used to make this came from thrift stores except the loteria cards which came to me in a swap. The small female clay figures came from a necklace, the lacey pieces are plastic doilies and I thought they reminded me of mantillas( I hope I'm using the right word, my espanol is a bit rusty) , the candle holders are large macrame beads.

Thanks for looking. Cheesy

Oh Stifflersmom...that's...wow...stunning! I'm really, really impressed! You've got to make sure you join in the upcoming shrine swap.

What is the body of the piece made of? I'm seriously jealous if you found that in a thrift store...we do NOT have thrift stores
that have anything like that in Missouri, I can assure you of that.

Thanks everyone!  Amaryllisroze, I've always admired your shrines.
The body is from a thrift store, $2. It's a picture frame, and as soon as I saw it on the shelf, I knew what it really wanted to be. Cheesy
I thrift about 3-4 times a week. The good stuff is out there, you've just gotta dig for it sometimes. Smiley

Awesome job! I can't believe this is your first shrine. You should be really proud of yourself!

I bought the shrine book by Kathy Cano-Murillo and was really inspired.
I'm working on another for a swap, it's really addicting.

The one thing I just haven't found at the thrifty is little barbie accessories. I want to make a shrine to shoes & purses, but I don't want to buy them new. (I'm so cheap Cheesy)

I got the book several months ago and I feel the same way about it! But I don't think I could sing the Murillo's praises enough. She & her husband are just wicked, wicked talented.

What a great idea! I've picked up little mini food there for yet another shrine I've got in the planning stages. I'll have to run at lunch and check for bitty shoes. THANKS!!

I've got a stash of retro purses to paint up like Patrick Murillo's. I just love their work!!
