Found 3 of these mirrors in the loft (obviously prepped in the past for a project that never happened - in fact vaguely remember buying them from IKEA about 7 years ago). So after browsing Stampers they had decorated a frame very similar to this one and it looked really nice so I set to and came up with ..........
I've used K&Co paper, Tim Holtz (but of course!!!) grungeboard flourishes from the Elements range, Ranger inks and a stamp of 4 vintage style ladies. I used some cream card and blended some distress inks on it, stamped the ladies image onto the card with black Versafine, cut them up and then sanded the edges and inked again for a slight distressed look. I love it but then I love vintage! I'm sure the other 2 will be going the same way! !
Hello, I'm Polly.
I love altered art, cardmaking, ATC's, in fact anything that needs gluing, stamping, inking or cutting is just my idea of heaven!!!!
I am pleased to say that my husband of 7 years is extremely tolerant of my crafts, especially as I tend to spread from one room to another,well aren't all we all a little messy when we're being creative!!
I like to incorporate all kinds of embellishments in my work especially lace, ribbon, butterflies, angels, hearts etc in fact anything pretty and girly. I soooo love pretty and quirky pieces of art. I was lucky enough to see Tim Holtz in the flesh recently - seeing him was just fantastic. It was only a one hour demonstration but its amazing how much inspiration you come away with.
I hope you enjoy my blog
