Hello Donna here to share with you what I have created for this month’s theme Antique! I have made something new and from old and given it a new life on my daughters dressing table.
I started off with a very old antique looking makeup mirror and gave it a face-lift. I pulled it all apart and painted the whole entire frame work with distress paint to prime the surfaces.
I then embossed them all, some places have a few layers.
I love making things look old so I had to add a touch of Verdigris over the metallic copper
I embossed the base with a mixture of bright white and opaque pastel blue with a sprinkle of Verdigris to carry the colour threw.
For the back I stamped with the vintage wall paper stamp. Added a blue wash over the entire surface and then embossed several time with clear. I was trying for the broken glass effect but did not have a lot of luck as I only had super fine clear left in my stash 😦
Then it was time to decorate my frame
Before I added the decoration I did add a couple of layers of crackle paint over the base and I love the effect it had. In areas it has peeled away from the base! PERFECT!
I had made lots of embellishments with our silicone moulds
and popped them throughout the flowers.
Hope you have all enjoyed my share this month. Look forward to seeing what all you lovely WOW fans create for this months challenge. Happy Scrappin everyone xox Donna 🙂
