Where have I been?

Im very sorry Ive been AWOL........
Ive had alot on this last week, including the fact we bought a Wii Fit and Ive been side tracked with that sorry, However I made this last night, which is to send to someone ( who I hope likes it ) but I was pleased with it so i just wanted to share. I know its a while since you all did shrines but they are new to me, Ive had so much on Im just getting to try them now.

Hi Chris, I never think till after posting i should say how ive done things.....yes i stuck bits of torn tissue to the fronts, then covered the whole thing with gesso, then sponged with acrylic paints, edged with navy ink, stamped on the frida and quotes, glued on the cut ots , added the glitter glue on the jewellry, and that was that, LOL Jaqi
