Ornate Shrines on the Agenda Today

Hi everyone!!! It's been way too long, but here we are.

I've been on a bit of a tear, so to speak, creating some of my favorite things using the Retro Cafe Art Gallery Ornate Shrine Kits. It's been fun piecing bits and bobs of left-over gems with paint, stamps and papers.

They're all pretty much the same, just different types of paints and paper lines, but different in their end results as far as the vintage photo images and color. I like to hang them just above a light switch. 

This one is the latest with Paper Artsy Fresco Paints as the base color. I love how the Smoked Paprika and Blood Orange really brighten up this piece. 

The child is possibly around 8years old, so I used that on a Finnabair Mechanical. 

This totally serious child has Metallique metallic paints on the large part that add more of a shine than the chalk paints. It's all a question of what you like best. 

The other elements are dusted with Metallique paints to add more color.

This actually was the first one I made in this group. He, yes it's a boy, was in one of my first classes I gave. The paints are both Fresco and Metallique here. 

I added Texture Paste to the base using a Finnabair stencil which also adds dimension and shine.

The "I" and Dream created the theme. All the shrines have paper on the inside walls land Fresco Paints on the outside. Fresco paints are tops in my opinion for stamping on images. The chalk paint really leaves a crisp image all the time. 

The German Dresden creates the frame on all of them. The first two have butterfly wings that are from Retro Cafe Art as well as the Dresden and several other pieces of ephemera. 

That's it for today. Check out all 3 of the Ornate Shrine kits at Retro Cafe Art Gallery  along with all their other wonderful supplies.
