Three Heart Boxes Aug 10th

Welcome back to my blog, 

The weather is now starting to affect me, it's so hot that with my menopause, sitting in it is totally out of the question, as I'm so hot inside with the flushing  I'm either by the fan in my studio or in the shower...
The poor PUGS have a pool but one would lay in it like a human if I let her, (Misty) whilst, the other one lay (Alfie) in the pool with the Gazebo over him...

Today I am sharing my DT project for Daisys...

Three Heart Boxes

The Completed boxes below

all so different; the one below is the medium box that measures 140mm x 160mm wide x 25 mm depth.

This picture shows the  two smallest boxes alongside my own project of a frame:
The small box measures 95mm x 105mm wide x 25mm Depth
I used two acrylics paints Green & Orange from Daisys and a stencil. 
I wanted the 70s look, bright and wonderfully simple.
Sealed with Mod Podge

The largest of the three Heart boxes below:
As with all the boxes covered in a light layer of white gesso, then covered with paper from wonderland collection of Stamperia. 
The lid is stencilled with beautiful words from PipArt and once dry using a sponge covered with Pink and blue Gilding polish.
A few flowers I made with some little silver leaves, corner dies cut in metal and a heart.
