Stay Curious

Hello, Jennalee here today. When I saw this ATC Shrine I knew it would make the perfect housing for an assemblage. A little faux rust and a few gears and your piece is well underway. 

Begin by preparing a faux rust background. Cut to size and run thru Xyron. Adhere faux rust pieces to the back sides of ATC Shrine pieces. Use an Exacto knife to trim notches. 

Adhere faux rust piece to the border of the ATC Shrine door. Emboss clock face with Burnt Copper Leaves and clock hands with Charred Gold. Paint the back of the shrine door with Raw Umber acrylic paint. 

Prepare background for the inside of shrine by embossing a piece of gold paper from Tim Holtz's Paper Stash Metallic Kraft pad using the Mechanics 3D Texture Plate. The secret to getting a good impression is to mist your paper with water before running thru your machine. Once embossed lightly sand and ink with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. 

Cut background to size and run thru Xyron. Adhere background to inside pieces of the shrine. Be sure to leave the tabs uncovered so your shrine will fit together correctly. 
Assemble shrine. I used Distress Collage Medium to adhere all the joints. 

Add finishing details. Using a drill punch add a hole to the side of the shrine to attach an Idea-ology Clock Key.  Adhere round ephemera piece from Layer Collector pack to shrine using foam dots. Add detail to the background with Mini Gears. Adhere a Paper Doll using two foam dots stacked for extra dimension. Fashion a cane from a Game Spinner and layered Mini Gears. 

Look at that faux rusty goodness on the back of the shrine!! 

I really love this ATC Shrine. The clock on the door was the perfect inspiration for this make. 

Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you have a great weekend and get a chance to make a creative mess. Happy Creating~ Jennalee
