Moon Gazing Mouse Shrine

Happy Saturday, everyone!  This mouse and moon project was a lot of fun to make and is perfect for autumn. 
I used the GSL ATC Shrine with Feet. It has just 5 pieces; a back , top, bottom and two sides. All are easily assembled using tacky glue.
The papers I used are from Graphic 45's Happy Haunting (Jolly Jack O'Lantern) and Halloween in Wonderland (You're Late!) collections. These tiny pumpkins are actually Putka Pod decorative bowl filler I found at Michaels. I made the miniature moon in our pottery studio but it could easily be made out of either air dry or polymer clay. A thick green felt was used for the ground cover. 
After I assembled it using tacky glue, I painted all of the front edges of the shrine with black acrylic paint.
This night sky paper is one I return to quite often. The exterior paper I used reflects the pumpkin patch setting for this scene.
I assembled a mini pumpkin, flat filigree jewelry connector, and bits of plastic greenery for the top of the shrine. The Little Brother Mouse is a Hagen Renaker porcelain figure.
The green felt was cut to fit as both the ground cover and a gently rolling hill. Secure everything in place with E6000 glue and you have a cute little autumn scene.
 Thanks for stopping by!
