Love Shrine, by Natassa Blazaki. Mixed media tutorial.

Hello everyone!

This month we celebrate Love and for me, it’s all about having passion and excitement for everything in life.

For my Love Shrine, I drew inspiration from Mexican culture, where people make all sorts of colorful, bright and flowery shrines and dedicate them to their loved ones.

I constructed the shrine by trimming and attaching two book separators on a tag.  Then I glued some heart cutouts to create my focal point inside and also on the outside of the shrine.

I applied two coats of Black Gesso Paste to the whole surface and then worked with different shades of patinas to create a vintage background.

I used a Gold Relief Pen to create a decorative border and I also applied some Gold Stencil Paste to decorate the outside of the shrine

Painted the flowers with Vintage Paints. Lastly, I filled the small hearts with Triple Thick Gloss Varnish.

I really hope you enjoy it!

You all have a Happy Valentine’s Day!
