Heart Shaped Box by Lynne Moncrieff

This week I am sharing a heart shaped box which I gifted to a lovely friend. 



Oxford Impressions Stamp Set Jane’s Garden
StazOn Saddle Brown
Mod Podge Matte
Gel Medium
Gesso (white)
Foam Brush
PaperArtsy Fresco Chalk Acrylics:- London Night, Chalk, Nougat, Mushroom and Crackle Glaze
Wooden Heart Shape Box
Extras:- Various laces and rose lace trim



After applying Gesso to box (including inside and underside), I applied a base layer of London Night followed with Crackle Glaze. For the top layer I mixed Chalk, Nougat and Mushroom. For the inside I skipped London Night and Crackle and simply painted with the other paints. 

I didn’t want the crackle to be too obvious so applied the thinnest of layers. 

Once dry I stamped the beautiful script stamp with Saddle Brown, doesn’t it have more of a golden tinge to it! Also stamping around the edge, once to the inside of the lid and once to the underside of the box. Aim for a slightly distressed appearance to the stamping.


Before embellishing with lace I applied two thin layers of Mod Podge Matt, then it was time to adhere the various lace with Gel Medium, including cutting lace rose trim to decorate the lid.


There we have it. 

Until next time,
