Challenge 37- A Shrine-Out of a Hat Creations

Hello everyone and welcome to my new followers-hope you have had a happy and healthy week and enjoyed your crafting.

Must say I panicked a bit when I saw this challenge come Out of the Hat I had never made one before and wasn't even sure what it involved.

As I was going to be swapping mine with another of the Mad Hatters I needed to think how to use some of things she had sent for us both to have the same things to use on a few of the following challenges. We could use them on any of the next three challenges-then swap our makes. Thank you Janet for the idea and the great items you sent.

Janet sent the easel and canvas and the square shape that I used for the top of the shrine. She had also sent me the Hatter stamped image a while ago so I used that as well. It is by IndigoBlu-Alice 1. The wooden embellishments are from Crafty Emblies

I also made a box shrine but it was such a venture into the unknown and I am not really pleased with it.

I painted the outside of the box red then painted little 'flowers' around the edge. Then I stamped the quote straight onto the box--very brave.

 Inside are some little bits of tree, some pebbles and a sparkly heart.
