This is a special post today...its my 100th!!!
(Thank you Jackie for pointing it out to me...I hadn't noticed.)
Well, I've finally finished Sesga's shrine. I couldn't decide at first what to dedicate it to, but then I thought .... I'll make a shrine to love.
I deliberately painted it from dark to light turquoise (its not the light reflecting at the top!) I printed the words onto a transparency , cut them out then stuck them on with glossy accents.
Its got little swimming hearts inside, some of which are chipboard. The big heart stands out quite a way although you can't tell from the photo. I sawed the end off a blue crayon and stuck the heart onto it.
Sesga sent me the gorgeous beads which set it off nicely I think.
I know I've made it a bit naive but I don't mind.
Maybe I'll do a grungy vintage one next time!

Thank you so much Sesga...for the gift and for the inspiration.
I'm already making a couple of my own - I've just about worked out how to make them!

Oh's to my next hundred.....

It is gorgeous Linda! You have made a beautiful tribute to love. You have me inspired to work on the shrine Segsa sent to me too. I love your use of color.
