Totally Loved Up!

Last night I worked on a project for a  friend. This is what I made, its an altered Eclipse tin
  complete with a little tag book containing love quotes. (click on the photos for a better view)

My tin is covered in wax, which I have stamped into.I used the colours gold and red, the colours of love.

I spent ages choosing just the right quotes.The verse on the back of this tag reads...Love, the magician knows this little trick whereby two people walk in different directions yet always remain side by side.

Love can touch us one time and last for a lifetime, and never let go till we're gone.

I put my favorite quote on the back of my tin, this one reads...A guy and girl can be just friends but at one point or another one of them will fall for the other, maybe temporarily, maybe at the wrong time, maybe too late or maybe... just maybe ....forever.

  These quotes send a message of hope..

Once in a while in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale.

And  - Love can touch us one time and last for a lifetime, and never let go till we're gone.

Last, but by no means least  Absence diminishes small loves and increases great ones, as the wind blows out the candle and fans the bonfire.

Thanks for looking.

Carol asked me to post a tutorial over at Birds of a Feather, so check it out if you wish to have a go at you own.

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think
