This project was made as a personal swap with another Craftster member who is also a graphic designer. She made me something I needed to make personalized earrings and in return asked for one of my shrines. She wanted a graphic design or typography themed shrine though. I said hmmmmmm not super sure what I would do for that....
I did a few searches for typography to get some ideas and then I went through my stash. I knew I had this great & symbol and have had it for years. That was the start and what the rest of the shrine ended up be based off of.
I went on a hunt to the Craft store to see what else I could find and decided that some tiny symbol stamps would work for something and I found the number charms along with a tiny metal box charm.
I spray painted my shrine black and began to assemble it with a black, white, and neutral theme. The & bead had the perfect loop on it for me to hang the 3 from. This gives it some needed depth. I decided to use the stamps as a base. It's hard to see but I chose another & and the ! for the front. After I hung the three it still seemed to bare.. I decided to alter the metal box charm I purchased with some of the alphabet.
Here is the back of the shrine
I ended up also using a bit of black and white striped washi tape since the paper I used with the 7's didn't agree to being cut...
I really hope the person I sent it to liked it. This one made me stretch my imagination a bit since it wasn't a typical theme.
