Letting herself Laugh in the Sunlight

For today's Retro Cafe Art design piece, Mary Lou is showing off this antique white heart shaped piece. She has missed you all and is so happy to show  this necklace for me. You know that hearts are one of my favorite themes and when I saw this Shadow box heart Shrine from RCA, my heart melted and  I knew it was mine!

I started by painting the heart shrine antique white, removing the plastic cover then adding the hand cut text sentiment to the edge. The sentiment says: "She told the story again; letting herself laugh in sunlight and hearing music drifting over her emotions.". I then lined it with cream colored lace, placing the flower part in the corners. The tiny clay bisque roses and leaves came next. A yard of lace and two pearl heart buttons finished off this sweet piece today.

Hope you will laugh in the sunlight this week.
take care, gerri
