(SWEET LILAC FLOWERS!)
After sanding it lightly along the false grain, I took a stencil from my stash (Oh! Memory is failing me a little...guess I am gonna need to start keeping notes lol!) Strangely though I recall next picking out of my box the lovely flowers from Sweet Lilac http://www.sweetlilac.co.uk which adorn the project mmmm well they really do add that bit o' class to it.
With Versa-mark I stamped through the stencil and gently dusted mica powder over the area, repeating this a section at a time. I glued the large and small gems in place with hot glue. Then glued silver organza ribbon bows to opposite corners and added the flowers on top.
Finally, I masked the mirror and sprayed a gentle coat of Crafter's Companion Spray and Shine.
I made a shallow tray from hammered 12x12 white card to present it in.
Recently, knowing that before Christmas I had completed this project, I was further inspired when another crafter Karen Clare https://www.facebook.com/KarensLittleGiftsandCards also used the Ikea Mirror for crafting, but alas a bit more professionally than myself. I recommend you pop over to see Karen's work with these and please note that she will be running a workshop on 26th January using these.
I feel another wee trip to Ikea is needed.
Happy crafting folks... and Thanks for popping in.
Bye for now
