Story Box Shrine

(CLICK ON IMAGE FOR A CLOSER VIEW)

I took a long wood box, added some walls to create “windows”, and then added all kinds of little trinkets and things. Along my travels, many people give me little odds and ends, so I gathered them all up and used them in this piece as well. This is one big shrine of happy things!

1. Base coat the entire piece, and then paint the outside edges in a contrasting color. I went with red and hot pink.

2. Make a “background” for each window. You can use paint, glitter, textured paper, anything!

3. Choose a theme for each window and find small objects to go with it. Work on one little space at a time.

I made each little window tell a story. It’s a very personal piece, even though it just looks like a bunch of things glued in there!
Go be shiny,
Kathy 🙂
