Altered/ decorated mirrors

Post by Guest on Sun 22 Aug 2010 - 20:09

I went to a class at Scrap Revolution as I discovered it is only about an hour away.

This is the mirror I decorated/ altered while there.



And this is the mirror I decorated/ altered when I came back for one of my friends who wanted to come but couldn't as she was on holiday.

Wow, they're lovely! I sat next to Lorraine at a crop once (well, the crop I used to co-organise), as she came with her shop. Lovely lady, and very talented!

No, I'm not putting my 'to do' list here, that would be far to organised, PLUS I would have to keep it up to date  Laughing

They're lovely Helen, well done. Its unusual to see mirrors with such big frames, and good that you could alter it.

~These are lovely Helen. I, too, went to a class for these and painted one (Ikea cheapo one when it started out!) some years ago and it is still on Mia's wall in her living room. I thoroughly enjoyed doing it.

Thank you, I enjoyed doing them and yes, they started life as the cheap Ikea ones before I painted and misted them. I have another 3 mirrors so might be inspired to make some more.

Lorraine was very friendly.
