Presenting... Theatre Art Doll Shrine Kits!

I'm beyond excited about our six NEW Theatre Art Doll Shrine Kits, gracing your big screens for the first time. I've been dreaming of these ever since the talented Virginia Smith created her Bunny Doll Theatre from our Medium Theatre Shrine Kits last March. Well, they are finally here and they are a BLAST to play with. And it just so happens our Medium Theatre Collage Sheets, Fairy Doll Head Paper Cuts, and more fit them perfectly.

You can check them all out HERE.

(Other supplies used: Archival black and brown ink, Rust-Oleum Metallic Spray, Gold, Glue, X-acto Knife, Scissors, Sand Paper.)
Spray paint all pieces front and back. Cut out images and attach. Sand and ink all edges, and then add embellishments. Easy! xoxo

Everything's Coming Up Roses

Happy Saturday everyone! Keeping up somewhat with last week's release, we have several NEW goodies in the shop that will continue to fuel your Dia De Los Muertos art! If you like roses and flowers, you will love the new goodies. They are a blast to play with. I definitely took my turn (see below)! Check it all out HERE.

I had so much fun making these Rose Ornaments! I started by spray painting both pieces white. Then I added some collage, stamping, and acrylic paint. Super easy and I loved the result!

For the Open Rose Cut-Outs, I spray painted all of the pieces white and then added color with acrylic paint. The colors really pop!

Love the Layered Rose Cut-Outs. Again, simply white spray paint and colored acrylics!

The Rose Shrine was the most fun to make. First I assembled the shrine. Then I spray painted the entire piece red. A little acrylic paint, embellishments (including my rose from above), and paint marker accents and done!
My Frida Shrine above will be included in our Dia De Los Muertos Mini Shrine Swap! Come join us!

Dia De Los Muertos Goodies and a NEW ART SWAP!

I'm super excited about the new Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) goodies in the shop. It all started with some adorable Handmade Skeleton Dog Figures. Of course they needed a Shrine that was the perfect fit! And then Fifteen Shrines later... well, you know how that goes! We have tons of new Mini DOTD Shrine Kits, Charms, Ceramic Beads, Metal Roses, and so much more! You can check it all out HERE.
Since we have so many cool new Mini DOTD Shrines in the shop, a SWAP is definitely in order! Shrines are due Monday November 11th! In honor of the swap, all of the new Mini DOTD Shrine Kits are ON SALE! I had a blast playing with mine as show above! Get the swap details HERE.
