Craft Time!!

Having a great day off crafting, well what else would you do on a day off? This morning I have been finishing off a something I started weeks ago.

We have got a lot of Ikea mirrors left over from a workshop last year, planned to run it twice and only did it once! I have used the fabulous Viva Decor Crackling colour Croco in silver, gold and turquoise, this paint is absolutely great. If you haven't tried it I recommend you give it a go, great results every time. I have then put glossy accents here and there and added some seed beads and to finish added a few metal buttons, key, key hole, face and wings.

The pictures don't really do it justice. Going to leave it for now but not sure if it needs a bit of something else adding. I will go back to it later and see if I still feel the same! lol

OK well I am off to finish something else off now. What ever you are doing make sure enjoy your day.
