Good morning to all of you creative people in blogland! This is Crafting Marfa. Today's blog post is bitter sweet for me. This is my last project as a designer for Gina's Designs. I have had the time of my life creating with Gina's chippies and hardboard items. Honest to goodness, I would not trade my time in this team for anything in the world!
So, on to today's project. I want to share with you all my Owl ATC Shrine. This shrine is made of hardboard and it makes for an awesome little photo frame. I painted it with several shades of brown. Then I glued brown beads to bring out the tree. I used a few rhinestone hearts that I've had in my stash for years to accentuate the body of the owl and to decorate the fence. Then I glued square rhinestones to outline the box. They also act as two little legs to lift up the front of the box. I covered the tree with ICE resin and the rest of the box is covered with acrylic gloss. Just a little, not too much. Finally I put a photo of a flower from my garden that I really love. Even though I don't make Artist Trading Cards, I still really love to use Gina's ATC Shrines as little photo frames.
