I made this small shrine a while ago. It was gifted to my mom on my recent vacation to the Upper Peninsula and she really seemed to like it.
I started with the mini door shrine kit. Other fun Alpha Stamps goodies used include: Virgin of Guadalupe Cameo, brass cone feet, lace edged bezel and lovely Guadalupe imagery.
You may also notice that I used both copper and patina guilders paste. I added a few more brass touches with the sparrow's compass and brass corner. A bit of bronze baroque Dresden border finish off the outside of this tiny piece.
In order to make a halo around my image, I used a bit of shimmery trim under the focal. I popped the image off the background by mounting it on a small domino. This allowed for all the trim to fill the space. A few tiny flowers were glued into the foreground of the inside. I had to be sure that what I put inside still left clearance for the door to close.
It may be hard to read in these photos, but I selectively used a bit of stickles to add some magic to the Virgin.
It warms my heart to know my mom has this little bit my art stashed away somewhere!
