I altered this little shrine (they come with a choice of having a shelf too).
I used the lost coast rubber stamp based on the painting "American Gothic" as the background. coloured with watercolour pens and pencils and sealed before adding a coat of DecoArt crackle glaze. the cracks have been highlighted with Decoart media fluid paint. a nice bright Pyrrole Orange.
I painted the front panel with black acrylic, let it dry and added more DecoArt Crackle glaze. I highlighted the crackle on this more than once to get a it of variation in colour. firstly i used the orange. when that had all dried I used DecoArt white antiquing cream. it really shows the fantastic crackle up well.
A bit more painting and gluing the embellishments and then I assembled it all. (the little orange apples (dots) are left ov er parts from the shrine feet. I didn't use them all)
