I fell in LOVE with Kristin's Santos Shrines the minute I saw them!
She is brilliant!!!
Check them out and make one of these for yourself at:
I think the beauty of the Santos Dolls is their simplicity of design. I so admire anyone who does simplicity well. I tried....
In short, I painted all the pieces first, stamped them up with Archival Inks, and glued it together.
The Flaming Trinket Hearts are perfect to add to the base. One comes with the option to add it to the ball chain, and the other has the smaller Chub Heart Charm front added to the Winged Heart.
The Silver Heart Lock Charm and the Silver Fleur-de-lis are tinted gold with a Sharpie Pen.
And a bit of Inka Gold is smudged around the Hearts and Wings.
Paints are Fresco Paints from PaperArtsy.
I simply love her.
