Love*n*Hearts Candy Box

I just finished another recycled project! I found a candy box after Valentine's Day in a thrift store and came up with this Love*n*Hearts Box! I had some of the objects in my "stash of goodies" and then I added some papers, some from cards, my own artwork, and from Somerset Studio. The candy piece that is seen on the inside is a candle that I found at a thrift store. Keep those eyes open when you are in the "Junk" stores! You never know what you may be able to use!! Have a LOVEly day and Hearts to you!

**~Breezes From Tuscany~**

The movie "Under the Tuscan Sun," one of my favorites, inspired me to make this shadow box! The words on the postcard are from the movie, where Francis is in the marketplace, composing a postcard, while being inspired by her surroundings. I put together a few found objects, such as the tile, silk leaves and grapes, and the buttons, made a few papers (the stamped sunflower and the postcard), and came up with this whimsical shadow box! This can be found on my website.

~Thank You for Being a Friend~

I have just finished another altered bottle. I recycle bottles, give them a few coats of paint, then embellish! This one has a handmade tag that can be removed to use on another project, or on its own. The lid comes off and silk flowers may be added for decoration. I do not recommend putting water and real flowers in the bottle. This bottle can be found on my website. Hope you like it!

Love Trees Collage Just Finished

We had some old wood sitting around in the garage, so I used it for my collage. I added tissue paper for a base, then added fabric, fibers and a few older bird stamps. I painted the slide and added the verse, "He that plants a tree loves others besides himself." by Thomas Fuller. I LOVE nature and spending time outside! Hope you like it!

My Note Card Box~Memories!

This is the latest project I have been working on. I just added it to my website! The verse reads, "How do I know, that my youth has been spent? Cause my get-up-and-go, has got up and went. But oh, how I grin when I think where it's been..." The first picture is the outside of the box and the other pictures are the inside. Kick up your heels and live a little!!
