A link, all I can say to that is, DOH!  LOL  Thanks for reminding me I could do that, amaryllisroze!
 Okay, here the link is for my first, as well as, one and only in progress. It's a shrine for my husband's cat, Merlin, who passed away last August, he was such a sweetie.

There is a string of 10 "wheat lights" behind the frame so that the pictures can be view more easily at night. I still need to work on the roof, the platform where the battery box for string of lights will be housed and the legs/feet of the shrine. On the large picture in the upper right is real whisker of his which we just happend to find after he passed.

Thank you!  I'll explain the secret of the tuna can. Cheesy   It's made from two of the metal tea light containers.  The one on the bottom is pushed up inside the inverted top one.  The bottom one had to have some ease slits cut into it so that it fit inside.  Something solid needed to be put inside to not only weigh it down but to stabilize the sides of the "can" since the metal is very thin and easily bent. The label is an image I ran through Photoshop to size it so it would fit the front of the can and then glued on.

Shrine Progress: Roof is on and the platform is started.

Check out the very first message in this post, the one from Stopmoshun. There are so many links there it will make your head spin with ideas!

Other than that, I'd say decided what you want your shrine to be about and find a base for it. Then collect the elements you think you want in it. I usually have way more elements in the beginning than actually make it into the finished pieces.

Just start putting it together to see what works for you. Decide a  base color. I don't glue anything down until I'm sure that's where I want it. If I have a layout I think I like but I'm not committed to, I take a picture of it, in case I change my mind and can't remember where I had things before.

In most cases, for me anyway, a piece will get changed a billion times before I'm happy with it. Its rare that I feel I got it right on the first shot.
