Since we are still in the month of love, I created a love themed window box card for some family members who are moving house soon. I used my new DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics, which are just fantastic. If you want to see more of the paints and how to use them, just visit DecoArt's Mixed Media Blog for more information.
Wendy Vecchi's wall stencil and DecoArt's Media Texture Sand Paste. Once this was dry I spritzed it with some watered down DecoArt Quinacridone Red, mixed with a little Quinacridone Gold. The bricks have a wonderful textured feel to them and they look amazingly realistic.
The window frame and window box were given a coat of DecoArt Titanium White and once dry I applied some Weathered Wood Crackle Medium and finally a coat of Titan Buff Medium Fluid Acrylic. Once dry I went over the whole area with Raw Umber Antiquing Cream. The beauty of the cream is that it can be rubbed gently into the cracks and edges but until it is sealed (with All Purpose Sealer) it can be easily removed or just placed here and there to give an aged appearance.
The heart flowers were created by punching out three hearts for each flower, these were scored down the middle and placed back to back and then glued to the stems (also part of Eileen's window box die). The words were stamped with a small alphabet stamp from my stash.
There is still plenty of time to enter Eileen's 'Projects to Love' Challenge and it would be lovely to see you there.
Thanks so much for looking, I hope to see you again soon. Hugs, Anne xx
