Small Shrines and Dioramas by Corinne Marie

Small Shrines and Dioramas

Supplies Needed:
Small Jewelry Boxes or Tins
(approx. size is 2.5x3.5 inches)
Collage Sheets:
and glue sticks
Double stick mount tape (squares)
Scissors, Ruler, Pencil, Glitter etc.
Small Green Girl

I fussy cut the girl out, and wrapped the box in
lime green tissue paper. To give the girl some
depth I added a couple of squares of mount to
her back.  I then added the German Scrap to
give the feel of a garden setting.
A few small things like butterflies and flowers
make this a nice home for her. She is at home
in her garden or on her way to a St. Patrick's party!
Fairy with Flower

This fairy is particularly sweet. She is delicate and
really need a soft and cozy place to reside.  I
wrapped the box in printed tissue paper, and
printed two (2) images of her.  I cut the first image
to the size of the box, and fussy cut the second copy
of just the fairy.  I added the mount tape and placed
it directly on top the first copy of the fairy, this adds
dimension and give a bit of a shadow.  I put glitter
on her wings and her flower.  I placed a large
German Scrap  medallion on the back side to give
a regal feel to her home. 

Woodland Fairy

I once again printed two images of this fairy, fussy cutting one
of them.  I covered the box in tissue
paper, and added some moss to the bottom and placed the
butterflies on it.  I placed a band of German Scrap  to the
top making an round shape that lets light in and highlights
the fairy and her butterflies.

I hope everyone gives this small shrines a try!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
