It is THYME to paint your HEART out


I belong to a paint chat group on Face Book called




Our group consists of over 2555 members from all over the world!
We have all have 2 things in common
WE LOVE TO PAINT
AND
WE WANT TO FILL THE WORLD WITH COLOR!


We recently had a
 SWAP
the only rule was that we had to paint something for our partner on a
HEART
shaped surface!
I found this heart shaped keepsake box to paint my project on


After prepping my surface and basecoating
I used a scruffy brush to paint a 
HEART
on
my box


I then added one stroke leaves free hand around the
HEART
The design that I used is based on a 
Jamie-Mills Price design
from her book
Christmastime Between the Vines


I then randomly free hand painted roses in various shades of burgundy and pink



I lightly shaded around my design and added some wispy vines


I painted the inside of my box in burgundy


 and
 added a delicate vine around the sides


I drilled holes in the back of my box near the hinges 
and 
strung thru a matching satin bow





I added some 
LOVE


and 
HERSHEY KISSES
inside my box.



I took an old paint brush, dipped the bristles in a glitter paint and let dry.
I then wrapped the handle of the brush with a satin ribbon and added a small tag
which said 
Paint your HEART out


I hope my friend Milena enjoys her swap!!!!
Hugs,
Lynn
