Getting ready for xmas

I have been making a few decorations recently in readyness for the festive season. My latest project is a mirror inspired by Tim Holtz.

Fiona, from our crop, got her husband to get us all lots of Ikea mirrors whilst he was down that way recently. What must he have looked like with a trolley full of mirrors.

Anyway, i adapted sir tim's idea to suit my own colours and as i dont pocess any stamps to make my tiles or memory glass etc, i am quite pleased with the result.

I learnt the technique of mounting an image on to chipboard, and then embossing with ultra thick many times from our scrap attack weekend with Dyan Reavly from art from the heart and blonde moments.

I embellished with a few small grungy board bits, metal frames and buttons. I added glitter to some of the plane pp tiles as well for added bling.

I had fun doing this and it only took the whole day cutting, glueing and embossing, lol

Dodgy photo's, I know. The camera didnt like the flective surface at all.

And just look at this to get you in the christmas spirit. What i nice surprise when i opened the door this morning to go to college.

Sarah your mirror is lovely - I like the fact you have made it Christmassy. I made a "Sir Tim" mirror earlier in the year and it was such fun to do.

Toni :o)
