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.
