Thought you all would want to see the altered shrine that Jean Webb brought in. She was given the shrine by the artist Pam Thompson who is one of the people interested in joining our group. The shrine has been in the classroom at Creative Stamper for the past couple of months but everyone may not have had a chance to see it. Here's what Pam emailed me about the shrine:
The Buddha "alter" has a black incense holder inside and the decorative top piece is an aquarium ornament of an Asian bridge painted black.
www.sacredartimages.com -- From menu on the left you’ll see shrines. Some are more religious, but may be good examples.
www.stampersmall.com/altered_art/ had a list that you could go through and one was specific for cigar boxes at RubberRoadAdventures.com
