Several years ago we started a tradition of finding heart-shaped rocks to give to each other. I’ve always thought it would be fun to do something with all of the rocks we’ve collected over the years.
This is what I decided to do with them as an anniversary gift for Gregg…
I started by taking the rocks and placing them on a piece of mat board in a pleasing composition. Then I glued them down with some strong glue.
I bought a shadowbox frame at Michaels, but didn’t like the white for this project.
I painted over the white with a soft yellow color, then sanded it a little for an aged look.
I put it all together and this is how it turned out.
Here’s another one that I just had to put in its own frame. I found this stone with a little heart in it!
Here’s what I did with this special heart…
I took a little black frame that I found in my stash, took out the glass and painted it a beige color.
Then I roughed up the frame with a little sand paper so some of the black showed through. I glued the rock to the back of the frame (which was already black), and finished it off with “love” using a fine point Sharpie.
Gregg was very happy with his gifts!
Soli Deo Gloria!
We love because He first loved us.
