Also forgot to mention ..... if you have a look at Patty's, Michele's and Sue's blogs, they enjoyed making shrines so much they made extra ones!! Well done girls!
Hope you've got your matchboxes at the ready? Here we go with Project no. 2!! This time we've made a mini album/book in a matchbox. Both of us used a standard small matchbox, but you could use a larger one if you prefer (not everyone can cope with going quite so small!), or indeed make your own to any dimensions you like.
We wanted to showcase different ideas, so Rosie used her matchbox in it's standard form, keeping the slide out drawer dimension, and punched eyelets into the top of the pages, linking the book together with bead chain. The paper is a Paper Whimsy digital collage sheet. Linda cut the outer sleeve and made opening doors, and her landscape album is more traditionally bound. As you can see, your imagination is the only limit!
Send us your entries by next Thursday so that we can showcase them again! Can't wait to see them, and THANK YOU all so much for your response. We've been thrilled t0 have over 1,000 visitors in our first week, and hope that this means we're hitting the right note?

We're loving all the wonderful shrines coming in - they are SO inventive!! Each Thursday we're going to put up the entries and talk about them, so look out for that, and of course this time we'll be letting you know the winner of the superb prize!

One or two people have said that bigger projects sometimes need more time, so if you think you'd rather see challenges fortnightly please let us know.
With a HUGE fanfare .... OFF WE GO!!
Thanks for being with us - and your first challenge is to make a shrine! We've made our samples as a shallow box with a frame, but yours need not be 3D as you can see from the ATC using the Mona Lisa. If you feel like starting with a bought frame Artchix do fabulous shrines as you can see from our prize picture, and we recommend their metal dreamboxes as huge fun to play with..
If you would like the basic instructions that Linda and I used, contact us via the comments section and we will email them to you. Can't wait to see what you come up with, and one lucky person is going to get a VERY nice prize!!
