Happy New Year

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE................XX




This was originally a Mr Men painted Mirror from the 99p shop and of course it had to be altered.  Using Gesso, Acrylic Paints, and Stencils.  The Lace and Flowers were sponged with Distress Inks.

I hate to admit it but this mirror has been stuck in a plastic carrier bag for 12 months only half done.  New Years resolution to myself.............finish all my half done projects...........and there are quite a few......sigh sigh.

This month the theme is recycling at Happy Daze, so thought I would enter this project.

Have a great week and thank you for all your support and for popping in, Hugs Annette x
