Shrines

For our first monthly challenge, we are very lucky to have the very talented Zuzu here to guest host.  Zuzu has chosen “shrines” as her challenge prompt.  This can be as elaborate or as simple as you like – anything from a tri-fold ATC to something like our wonderful example Zuzu made.  Here’s some of what Zuzu had to say: “Whether it’s a folding Icon type shrine made of card, a Shrine laid out on a rock or a bedroom dresser or something more solid with a niche hollowed out, I love them. Or maybe you’re more into something like a Tri-fold cards and ATC icon shrines., or metal mexican folk art nichos… The possibilities are endless.”

Remember you have a full month to post your piece – which is probably just as well since mine got completely painted over late yesterday and I have to start again.  Of course, there is no reason why you can’t post more than  once if you like the challenge!

    I have several shrines made and the theme is stuck in my head, so I continue to make different expressions of shrines.
