Tim Holtz Style Mirror...

...courtesy of the Artbase August workshop.

What a fab project and a wonderfully messy day LOL

Thanks have to go to Emma and Margaret for bringing us this great class.

We got to play with Tim Holtz crackle paints, distressing powders and distressing well as lots of gooy Glossy Accents. It's amazing how mucky a group of grown up ladies can get without even really trying very hard LOL. However, the day did start with a very big decission to be made...what selection of colours to use - I chose the colours you see above because my hall is yellow and blue and the 'bits' I had collected to put on the mirror were mainly boaty in nature.

The yellowy photo was taken in my hallway and as you can see the lighting wasn't very good but it does prove that the mirror came home and went straight on the wall :o). The other pics were taken in the kitchen cos the light is so much better and two of the pics show just small bits of the mirror so hopefully you can see the detail a bit more clearly.

I had the most wonderful time doing this project (even though 24hrs later I'm still scrubbing ink from under my nails). Way to go Emma & Margaret, thanks for a really super day......................
