Mirror, Mirror

Hi Sweet Pea friends out there, and everyone else who is visiting my blog today. I was working on something special the last few weeks. And finally today I can show you. I wanted for once making a bigger project than a card had the idea to decorate one of those simple mirrors available at the big Swedish furniture mart. I saw this a while ago when I visited friends. They have such a mirror in their apartment, with a painting on it. I loved it and knew I have to create something like this as well. So here it is:

I painted the wide wooden frame with acrylic pain, a mix of purple, blue and green.

To decorate the mirror I chose two of the amazing Sweet Pea Stamps  images from the ching-chou kuik's Fantasy Art Collection. The first one is Nocturnal Spirit.

Both are on the same plate # 124, but are available as single stamps as well. I coloured them with Distress Inks on heavy watercolour paper and glued them to the frame.

Then I added some more effects to the frame; I punched some stars out and layed them to the frame. I painted some white fabric paint over them, let it dry and surrounded them with stickles for a lovely shine. I added more fabric paint to the images and added some flowers and beads as well. To finish off I glued some cord around the inside of the mirror and as a hanger.

The saying with the lovely celtic border is a cut out from a sheet of paper from the 'once upon a time' stack by DCWV... love it!

Well, I hope you like what I made and perhaps you feel inspired to make your own mirror. If so let me know, I would LOVE to see.

Thank you so much for your visit. Always so much appreciated.

Hugs, Karina
