MMM ~ Shrines

Mixed Media Monday has shifted to monthly and the theme for this month is Shrines. Having a full month has allowed me to create a more complex piece that I would usually do for the weekly challenge format.

I created this from pieces of card and added layers of old text sheets to strengthen the assembly.

    • Yes, made with card (aka cardboard, strawboard or chipboard, depending on where you were brought up! My father is a printer who tells me there is no such thing as “cardboard”; it is either “card” or “board” depending on thickness)

  8. Your shrine is really lovely and gives me the feeling it was made with someone very special in mind. Great details!

    • Thanks Patty – it was made for my Great-Aunt Elsa Butler who died about this time last year. I was given a boxful of her gorgeous vintage ephemera – she had kept all sorts of things; church group cards, receipts, cards and envelopes. She still had enough unused gift cards to last another 90 years!

    This is a fabulous creation, Michelle – it doesn’t look like it’s made from card. Gorgeous!
