'Beautiful' Mirror

Hello fellow crafters!! Natasha here with a mirror I had altered a little while back.
The actual wooden mirror was purchased at Ikea for $2.99. I bought a bunch of them because the wooden surface is perfect for altering. And because they were inexpensive too!!

The entire surface of the mirror was covered with torn pieces of The Crafty Chronicle and adhered with Beacon's Fast Finish Decoupage. Then I added a layer of gesso and spritzed on several colors of Smooch Spritz. For a simple tutorial, click HERE.
I also applied ceramic stucco to random areas of the mirror for added texture. Love this stuff!
The distressed dots were embossed using white embossing powder by Clearsnap.
This cluster is made up of mulberry flowers, satin flowers, cut flowers from Donna Salazar's Vintage Gears paper and Prima trinkets and bling.
The chipboard wire dress form and mini corner are manufactured by The Dusty Attic. I created the dress from paper, tulle and trim. I also added eyelets, ribbon, pearls, an antique trinket and Fairy Dust Glitter to further embellish the dress.
Here is a peek at the bottom of the dress form. I randomly painted it and inked it with Leather Mix'd Media Inx. These Inx come in such gorgeous colors!
The 'Beautiful' chippie was painted with acrylic paint and adhered using a spray adhesive to avoid glue seeping out from behind this delicate piece.

I hope you enjoyed my mirror. Altered projects make wonderful gifts for those special people.
Have a beautiful day!
