Claire's Altered Mirror.

Good Morning Spodgers,

How are you today?

Have you got a reminder to sit down on Tuesday afternoon with nice cup of tea and watch Tom and Hazel on Create and Craft at 2pm and 6pm. They will be some fantastic new products not to be missed.

This week is 'Anything But a Card' Week. We are showcasing the masks this week with projects other than cards. This shows the versatility of the masks, we have already had a beautiful wall hanging and today a stunning mirror. Claire must have been very busy creating this but I'm sure she also had lots of fun.

Anything but a card. I've altered a cheap mirror using lots of different acrylic paints, Maimeri light modelling paste applied through the Complex Frame mask. Although this is an 8x8 mask I used bits of the mask as I worked around the mirror. Once the modelling paste was dry I applied Flitter glu and gilding flakes. I've added some radio valves that i found in the shed and ideaology bits and bobs as embellishments.
Isn't this mirror just amazing?? I love it, if you love it why not call over to Claire's blog and see more amazing creations.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read the blog.

See you tomorrow
