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!
