I found this plastic hand mirror at
a few weeks ago.
I had an idea of what I wanted to do with it,
but it went a completely different way.
I still may try my original idea,
so I will keep that to myself for now.
I covered the mirror with 2 coats of
Deco Art in Spa Blue.
Once the blue was dry,
I dry brushed some creamy white chalk paint
lightly over the surface.
That was followed by a coat of this product.
(I had a huge stockpile of this from years back,
not sure whether it is still available.
You could probably substitute a clear varnish with a drop of brown paint.)
I dabbed the wet varnish with paper towels as I worked,
I did not want it to be a solid coat.
Here is a close-up of the look I wanted.
I cut an oval from scrapbook paper
and affixed it to the mirror with ATG,
and went about layering all these pretties.
Sometimes it is just fun to play,
and this was one of those times.
