Julie: Altered 'shrine' project

Hello again.

Today I've got a 3D project to share using the tall Tando Creative 'Mini Theatre Stage':
The structure itself is made from layers of board which you glue together to form a stand-alone structure:
And ... if I'd thought about it before hand, it would have been an ideal way to build up several layers of scenery behind my focal point:
  • by adding in a layer of decoration ...
  • followed by a layer of frame ...
  • follwed by another layer of decoration ... and so on, trapping the scene and incorporating fully into the structure.
Maybe the next one I make I'll remember to try it out!
Before glueing the top frame down, I covered it in 'Horizon' a patterned paper from the Lecon De Choses range and trimmed around the edge with my craft knife:
And, alongside some bits + bobs form my own ephemera collections, I added bottle caps, lots of cabochon and German Scrap foil trimmings:

The various Tando 'shrines' make lovely gifts which you can personalise and tailor to your recipient and fill with items that will mean something to them.  I gave this little scene as a gift on Mother's Day this year and she still has it out on display in the living room ... so I must have done something right!

Thanks for dropping in today. I'll be back here in a few weeks ... see you then.
