I've been on a little shrine making kick lately. Here's a large matchbox shrine. It measures about 3" by 4" not including the little dome.
The outside:

The curved part at the top is actually an image of an old game spinner. The color was so perfect that I just had to use it. The halo and the leaf she's holding are actually gold charms, and I used a gold paint pin for some accents.

The sides, with their Dresden trim. I just love that stuff!


Here's the inside: I love the giant 2" bottlecap. I am also in love with that spider webby black ribbon behind it. And the glitter.  Cheesy


Here's what it looks like all together:

I love personal swaps,  I print a lot of random fabric, usually with no purpose in mind.  let me know if you want any of it.

Dresden trim is a textured, lacy paper trim that's usually shiny. The side of this shrine has two layers of it: the gold, and then a layer of orange-y red. I think it always adds an extra punch to a project.

I never used it until I kept seeing how nice all of amaryllisroze's stuff always looked when she used it. I blame her for my obsession.  Cheesy
