Good Morning Everyone and a very big welcome to my new followers who have joined me from WOYWW lovely to have you on board and THANK YOU everyone who commented on my previous post. As promised I am showing you my finished mirror that I had on my desk yesterday. I love doing these mirrors and you may see afew of them cropping up every now and again on my blog.
With this mirror I used pool,silver and citrus alchohol inks on gloss card for the backgrounds and felt it was a little too citrus so I have used pool only on the top embellishments to help things pop out. all the stamps are from the Tim Holtz classic favourites set by Stampers Anonymous stamped with black archival.
You will spot the obvious items, the lock die-cut from Tim Holtz Hardware findings bottom right which has also been cut and shrunk top left with one of my favourite things shrink plastic. Bottom centre we have the Tim Holtz Glass Fragments (I know the caption does not match with just glass but it does go with the mirror as a whole). I have added a chain and crystal pendant from my stash onto 2 chipboards diamond shapes to the bottom left. Moving up to centre left are some pen knibs I found at a car boot not quite as nice as Tims, but they were cheap (50p for 10!) I spend a lot of time at car boots! as you have probably noticed. Top left of course is the ideology filmstrip ribbon. The keys, little glasses and the small pocket watch were all from my stash picked up here and there over the years and the stamp held with the clip is from a Lindsay Mason set I have had for a while called Creative Thoughts.
Now the silver metal tape surround looks like I have gon over it with a texture roller but in fact it was some old carpet joing tape I had let me explain what I did....
