May I take this time to say a big thank you to Hels & Jennie
for the opportunity to show my craft creations here.
My first piece I would like to shaer with you is a Mirror that I have altered.
I have placed a piece of paper over the mirror
(so you don't get me in the reflection)
I have taken some step by step pics
to show how I made it and some of the things I used are also in the pics,
(so there will be less writing to read)
That's always good in my book.
stamps from the the artistic stamper range pictured below;
Here's the mirror before I altered it;
I made a template using white card
With Antique Linen distress ink & blending tool
distress white card as shown,
Then use the same ink & this Calligraphic Mat 13 stamp
(love the size of this stamp)
& stamp all over as shown,
With these 3 stamp sets,
I stamped ramdomly using Sepia Archival Ink
blend inner & outer edges as shown,
Then glue this to the mirror,
Next is the embelishment part,
& Peeled Paint, Faded Jeans & Rusty Hinge Distress inks,
Make a selection of flowers as shown in pic above,
remember to shape them for extra dimention, then glue together,
I added a touch of rock candy distress stickles for that extra touch of sparkle
Hels has a fab tutorial on her blog
for the rose if your not sure how to make them.
Add some sparkly bits or gems,
I have used old & broken bits of jewellry for this one,
some silver buttons & 2 decorative stick pins from my stash
all stuck with silicone glue.
I think I have rememberd everything,
I will be back on the 14th with my second project
see you then, Have a crafty day,
