Trimcraft DecoMache Altered Mirror

Hi all

I have something a bit different to share today. I bought this old mirror from the charity shop and decided to up-cycle it using the First Edition Deco Mache papers.

I started off by painting over the old pattern with DecoArt Everlasting Chalk Paint and letting it dry before i started laying up the deco mach papers. I only used on pack of 3 sheets for this project but you could add another layer if you need to.

I had a lot of fun creating the embellishments.  I used organza ribbon to make these flowers which i decorated with resin flowers and buttons.

The lace flowers are easy to make, just take a length of lace trim and stitch along the top with a running stitch. Push the lace up to one end and tie the thread ends together.

I used scraps of Deco Mache to decorate MDF shapes and added acordian stickers in between the fabric flowers.
