I'm not all pinks and pretties!
Looking back at the projects I've posted, I noticed that they were all pink, purple, and pretty. I don't want to pigeonhole myself, so I'm sharing my favorite shrine project!

Start by painting your shadow box. I taped newsprint over the glass since it was not removable.
I did a coat of coral, once dry I added a coat of yellow. I wiped it down a bit with a dry cloth to let some of the coral show through. I then sprinkled it with a little dark green embossing powder to age it.
Now to decorate your background. Cut a piece of felt to fit the back of your box. Now embellish it! I cut shapes (an arch, hearts, etc.) from clashing colors of felt and stitched them onto the background with contrasting thread. Then I added mini scrabble tiles and some sequins.
Cut thin pieces of felt to cover the sides of the inside of your box and decorate those too. Mine are painted.
To decorate the "floor" of your box, spread a thin layer of white glue over the surface. Leaving space for your doll's feet, sprinkle glitter or beads everywhere else.
