Altered Mirror

Thought you might like to see my altered mirror that I made last week when my crafting buddies came to play. It started off as a plain wooden Ikea mirror and with the help of some embossed card, acrylic paints, mod podge and Artisan water oil paints turned into something rather different.












And just to prove my buddies were working rather hard here's a pic of them and our finished masterpieces which just needed to dry for a few days before adding the final gloss coat.






Aren't they all fab. Really enjoyed doing that and the mirror will be going to my mum for Mothers Day for her hall.
We also made our Faux leather covers using Sheena's tutorial but will blog that later as need to finish the inside first which could take a while lol.
Hope you all have a fabulous Sunday and happy crafting.x

  20. Beautiful mirrors, Kay. I have altered quite a lot of these and they are a gift for an artist - all that lovely flat space around the little mirror!

    Thanks for your visit, and I'm sorry you didn't make it to the Devon County Show. It was a big disappointment for a lot of people that it was cancelled because the ground became waterlogged. We are very glad we went on the first day. Thanks for the info about the felting - I did see Joan Prowse but not to speak to - she was busy with somebody else. One day I might get to a workshop!
