Five Halloween Mini Shrines

Before I jetted off across the pond I was playing with these 5 Halloween mini shrines from AlphaStamps.


I went a little mad scientist and used a few different techniques on the wee things.


I used everything from a simple crackle glue finish (instructions here) to a glitter smothered facade.


The Cat on Pumpkin Mini Shrine was painted in a vintage halloween style, and the Big Cat Mini Shrine was turned into into a toothy monster.


I think that both the simple finishes and painterly pieces look spookadellic and despite not being completely matchy-poo look well grouped together.



Note: that nose? A lump of paperclay applied and dried to the chipboard before painting.
