Paper Moon Shrine with Tutorial

It occurred to me that since I already scanned the clouds I had created for my Vintage Theatre Moon Shrine, I might as well go ahead and make an entire collage sheet. AND if I have a collage sheet prepared, I might as well create a project to go along with it. AND if I have a collage sheet and a project, I might as well get some video practice in and do a tutorial too. 

Here's the project...

Paper Moon Srine box with video tute - Nichola Battilana

It has the same sort of feel as the Vintage Theatre Moon Shrine but without the hard to find vintage embellishments.

Those lovely billowy clouds are part of a collage sheet available exclusively via Alpha Stamps. It hasn't officially been released yet, but I asked very nicely and they agreed to list it early so I could share it with you.

Here is the supply list:
Theatre Clouds Collage Sheet
Small Paper Theatre Boxes 

Thin Fleur Dresden Borders - Black 
Star Tinsel* 
Rusty StarsMetal Hands*
Graphic 45 Artisan Style: 
Patterns of the Past
Thread / craft yarn
Black and blue acrylic paint
Extra fine glitter (I've used Recollections Peacock Blue)
Black ink pad

Here is the video tute that goes along with this piece. It's long and I'm sorry about that, but for those who often have a million questions, it is a thorough walk though. Pinky swear I'll do my best to keep the time down from now on.

Good Luck! And be sure to let me know if you give this a try! I'd love to see the results.


  1. Loved the video, so thorough and inspiring! You seem to have a wee bit of an accent? That makes it even more fun! Thanks for sharing this with us. Happy Spring!

  2. Love your work and attention to detail to make a finished look. Thanks so much for this tutorial and hope you will be doing more. I am going to get your cloud page for sure.

  3. Your pieces of Art are truly amazing Nichola. And thank you for sharing the video, too!
