|As you can see it's a little rough around the edges no pun intended|
|So I added these roses to the corners using stained glass paint with the intention of making some kind of border to connect them up.|
|and I did these ones on the side|
|here is how it turned out|
hindsight I really should have gone about things a bit differently. Instead of poster board I should have spray painted my white border onto the mirror and then mod-podged on my doilies and rhinestones. It was a huge pain to get the poster board glued down it wanted to warp and crinkle. I ended up having to do it twice as on my first attempt I tried to cut my poster board in two pieces which was really awful and when that went horribly wrong I had to tear it all off and scrape all the glue residue off the mirror before I could start fresh. So the second time I cut 6 pieces of poster board two pieces for the top and bottom and 4 pieces for my sides (the poster board wasn't long enough to do one long strip) the second attempt went better but not perfect I did manage to cover my mistakes and seams with the doilies but if I do this again I'll save myself the trouble and use paint. All in all I'm fairly happy with the results it was defiantly an experiment and I learned a lot.
The boyfriend and I went for a drive at Nahmint Lake and the surrounding area which is one of my all time favorite places to visit it's so pretty. It was very snowy and icy up there.
|such a wonderful view|
|I was so surprised to see these flowers blooming when everything is so covered in frost and ice. I'm not sure what this shrub is I can't seem to find it in my books.|
Anyway that's pretty much what I've been doing lately haven't been getting a lot of crafting done as the boyfriend and I are actually trying to purchase a house and are working on getting everything together for that. Wow what a lot of little things to be done. We're almost there though just waiting for approval for out loan to go through.
Hope everyone is well and getting lots of projects done have a wonderful day.
