Today I designated craft day! I had bought this mirror with a wide unfinished wooden frame from a charity shop for 25p and it was waiting for me for months to do something with it.
I had talked to my daughter Brianna who’s 13 about making it for her bedroom. One of Brianna’s favourite colour is purple. I decided to do a decoupage using tissue paper.
The colours are purple, violet and teal. Next I tore it into pieces for the decoupage.
Brianna is crazy about dragons! So I sourced some pictures on google images to also use in the decoupage.
I tore bits off of the pictures as well to add to the decoupage feel of it. Then I used Mod Podge to paste it onto the frame.
I added several coats of the mod podge which gave it a nice glossy finish. I then added some pretty pearlescent type faux stones and some jewellery pendants which I found at my local Hobby Craft.
And here is the finished result:
As mentioned in my other decoupage post, Brianna loves the story of Alice In Wonderland. Can you spot the Cheshire Cat?
