Live, Love, Laugh

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

A busy day today as I am off to Sudbury for a couple of days early tomorrow morning.

Today I have an Ikea wooden mirror that I have created.

Step by Step

1. I removed the mirror and distressed the coated layer before adding a coat of Folk Art crackle paint.
2. I then added a coat of cream acrylic paint and left to dry.
3. I added the wooden bird cage, bird in flight, metal corners and the floral display before adding a coat of black acrylic paint.
4. Once this was dry I then added another coat to ensure all the pieces where covered.
5. To finish off I dry brushing Pebeo copper to the bird, birdcage, corners and metal leaves. I then added red iridescent pebeo to the flowers.  Around the edge I added the copper.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Brown Sugar Challenge #169 - Anything Goes
Crafting with Friends #9 - Always Anything Goes
TTCRD - Always Anything Goes
City Craft Challenge #284 - Into the Wood
Mixed Media World #8 - Anything Goes on Wood
