This week's girly-girl project is from my "Made by the Mother of a boy" series. Ok, I just made that up, but sometimes I wonder why I bother making things like this when I am the only girl in the house. Nevermind. I know why, because it's fun and I can give my posts silly names, like this one. And because I already have the supplies to do it, so there's no turning back.
This mirror was made out of boredom.
And the need to use some of the random materials that have been laying around for months, or even years, in some cases.
Around Christmastime, I decided that I wanted to see what would happen if I put embossing powder on a mirror. So I tried it on a few mini round mirrors, and I loved it! And then I did nothing with them for a few months. Well, that's a lie, I put one in my purse to randomly use to make sure that my eyeliner hasn't gooped up in the corner of my eye.
Fast forward to last week when I was playing around with a little box of $1 Quick Pick gems from Webster's Pages and some other embellishments that float around my craft room. They are all so much fun, but I didn't want to waste them on just anything, or anyone. But in my manic I'm-just-trying-out-anything-and-everything-to-see-if-something-works impromptu crafting session, I discovered that these little gems looked so lovely on the mirror. So, a little E600 on the gems and a little more on the lace loop in the back and done! Easy, easy!
And me one more time, because I can.
