Lustereczko powiedz przecie... - Mirror, mirror on the wall...

Szkło - inspiracja na grudzień dla grupy projektowej Tattered Angels, a skoro szkło - to lusterka:)
Te ikeowe, w szerokich ramach, a przy tym niedrogie, to doskonały materiał rękodzielniczy - o czym wie wiele twórczych dziewczyn. Ja postanowiłam ozdobić jedno "po mojemu" czyli grandżowo, kolorowo, mechato - w odcieniach różu, złota i fioletu.
Sam proces był prosty - po zabarwieniu ramki bejcą nałożyłam pastę strukturalną i wszelkie dodatki, a następnie zabarwiłam wybrane fragmenty przy użyciu sprayów Glimmer Mist. To naprawdę brudna robota - ale i świetna zabawa w jednym!
Glass - our inspiration in Tattered Angels Design Team in December - and if we say glass, we have to say mirrors too :) The ones from IKEA are perfect for different ways of altering: I made this one "my way" - grungy, colourful and full of texture with extra glass drops added - all in the shades of pink, purple and gold. The steps were easy - first I added the pigment on the wooden frame ad when it was dry, i put some styctural paste and all the embellishments. The last step was spraying the mirror with Glimmer Mists and drying it - pure fun and dirty fingers are the part of the process!

Thanks ladies!
Structureal paste is something like texture paste or gel medium I guess - they have differences - some of them are glossy, some are not. I buy it in the big local shops for artists (with paints, brushes etc.) and they've got different brands.
