Always and Forever – Amanda Herring

Hello There

I am back with my second Dusty Attic project for March  and I have used the ATC Shadow box to create a shrine.

I have used a series of cogs and Ornamental chippy pieces to turn my shadow box into a small ATC Shrine.I love how the cogs and clock face give this piece the look of an old fashioned wall clock.

The paint colours are bright and I love the contrast between the 

ornamental shrine and the cogs and gears.

By cutting up the Ornamental Trim and Ornamental Pendants and spacing them around 

the ATC Shadow box gives a Mexican shrine effect.Adding the winged frame to the front of the shadow box helps to add dimension 

to the piece.

Th picture above shows the beginning of how cutting up the Ornamental pieces 

give a shrine effect.

I painted a layer of gesso over the entire piece , once assembled, and then added some texture paste to fuse the pieces together and unifies all the layers of chippy.
