I love you- OTP for C’est Magnfique June Kit

One of the items in the C’est Magnifique’s June kit was this wooden Icon Box from Prima. I really wanted to create a project with it, so I emptied it out and used it as a printer’s tray.
 First I primed it with Gesso. Then painted it in shimmery green acrylic paint which matched the Maja papers perfectly. I cut out a picture of each of my kids and popped it in one of the squares. I also used the green toned Maja papers to fill the other squares in the grid. 

Then, I decorated it with flowers, resist canvas embellishments and wooden mushrooms. Finally,I used the Shabby Chic Mirror in the center to add a title.

    I left you such a long comment here – I can't believe it's disappeared
    🙁 The internet must have bombed out whilst publishing…Good thing I came to check!! Was thinking you'd gone rather quiet…Drat!! This is so beautiful. I love the mint colour, the lovely soft gauze, the beautiful ornate frame & that wonderful piece of chipboard across the top!!
