Hi Everyone,
What a miserable day it has been weatherwise, cold, dull and pouring with rain this morning, hot, humid and dull this afternoon. I really felt like I needed some colour in my life this morning so I headed out into my Craft Shed and created this.....

It must have been the influence of the black rain clouds I could see out of the window....LOL,

It is a 99p Mirror bought at IKEA which I have altered for a challenge on The Lots to Do Site. The theme being recycle.
I have used torn corrugated cardboard and a ring pull as my main recycled materials, along with piece of ribbon and 4 brads. Everything was painted with black acrylic paint and then some silver acrylic dry brushed on the corrugations. A couple of pieces of sequin waste were used as masks and a silver wax rubbed through to add some more texture. A quote was then stamped with Black Stayzon onto tissue paper and adhered with PVA.
Unfortunately the photo doesn't show this mirror frame off to best advantage, but my 14 year old daughter laid claim to it the minute she saw it.....praise
