FANFARE OF TRUMPETS!!





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!!

Jaqi says

Heres my shrine Ladies.....I found it quite difficult doing it for a bloke, lace and trimmings just didnt look right. I think I should have stuck with something more feminine on second thoughts, but its a learning curve I suppose.
Hope its ok, LOL I cant get out of Elvis mode for some reason.
It's on her blog at:-

Mandy C said...

congrats to you both on your new adventure!

Rosie said...

Rosemary put this somewhere else, so I'm adding it here:-

This was a fun challenge. I have never done a challenge or a shrine so it was a little bit overcoming my apprehension and just doing it.

So, here's my entry:
