Happy Birthday Wishes Shrine


Hey there Peeps! Dropping in today to share a little gifty I made for my BFF Kathy. This little shrine is hopefully full of Birthday wishes that will come true. I’m starting with the Mini House Shadowbox 1 and adding mixed media layers, papers, eve a tiny jar of glitter in a painted trophy cup.

Metal butterflies coordinate well and add some depth.

I tied a length of silver twine and attached some matching keys. To fill in the bottom I added moss to hopefully give it a fairy quality.   I finished the inside of the shadowbox with the same aged finish…..but it’s difficult to see in the picture.
