Ohhh! I see I've got a new follower!!! Well, hello and welcome!!! I'm so glad to see you and I hope you get very comfortable here and stay awhile. I do love company!
Before I get started, some years ago a friend brought me a huge framed wall mirror that she'd found at a flea market for $3. The mirrow was beautiful but the frame had some nicks and scratches. So I took the mirror and antiqued the frame by lightly sanding, beating and applying a gold metallic finish to it (wish I'd taken a picture). I then went to work on removing some of the backing from the mirror and placed a 10" x 12" picture of her and her hubby's wedding photo behind it -- it came out gorgeous!!!
Well, I found a plain mirror I think I used once or twice on my dinner table to reflect candle lights, and I decided I would tinker with doing something with it with a copy of a special event picture of the hubby and myself; eventhough it wasn't a wall framed mirror. I have to tell you, the back of a mirror is darn near impossible to remove and takes almost forever. Anyway, it isn't nearly as nice as the one I did for my friend, and I wouldn't call it gorgeous, but it'll look okay to sit on my mantle -- for sure, it's different!
The picture is actually behind the mirror and looks like it's coming through it; that's why I'm calling it "inside out". Don't even ask me how I came up with this one because God only knows. Let me know what you think!!! Mirrors are really hard to take pictures of so please excuse if it looks dull looking, I put a cloth in front of it to keep it from reflecting everything in front of it, so it wouldn't lose a mirror effect.
Of course I used my cricut to do the etching, and the blinged embellishments are vinyl and paper flowers.
Well, that's it for now...
I'll be seeing you!
