Altered Dollar Store Hand Mirror (FInnabair/Angela Holt Style)

Hi Everyone!

I saw they carried the silver hand held mirrors at the dollar store.. and thought.. hmmm..i can so alter that....

So.. Process:

Gessoed the front and back of mirror with a thin brush (so it wouldn't get on the glass but then i ended up putting a picture.. but good to have the option there). then sprayed with lindy's baby blue eyes, and passionate plum (back).

I cut out a vintage girl picture i found on pinterest

Then I started layering WOC roses, metals and flower again.. Once it was all laid down I gessoed then went spray happy.

I  Sprayed it with Lindy's baby Blue eyes aqua, Lindy's passionate plum, and love at first sight,Prima color spray cobalt, Prima color spray iris, Heidi Swapp amethyst, Dylusions london blue (strong color). (in that order) ( I was having fun..)

dried with heat gun then...

The Front I PAINTED with Liquidex Cerulean blue hue acrylic paint mixed with a bit of gesso to to match my flower colors
