Inka Gold Paints For Another Altered Art Ikea Mirror Project.

Afternoon Bloggers.
A quick post to share another, Altered Art Ikea Mirror.
Various Embossing Folders, Black Gesso, Memory Box Die Cuts.
 Chip Board Shapes and some Inka Gold Paint in various colours.
My picture is a bit dark. It looks so much better in 'real life'.
I'll take another shot of it when we get some Sunshine!
 If I live that long!
My friend Karen Clare hosted a workshop that I so enjoyed.  
We had a fab time and learnt how to make these projects.
Karen is hosting another Workshop
 on Sunday 23rd February in Swanley Kent.
Pop over to her Blog for details.
Thanks for looking today

  18. Positively lush. You have outdone yourself Eileen.

  19. I looked at Karen's site (and you nicking the lollies). This style is very eye-catching indeed. Fabulous, lush effects you have achieved, Eileen.
    Did you use black gesso rather than the bitumen paint? And the various gold paints give a great finish. Hang in there 'til the sun comes.
