Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

My Paint Fusioned Mirror!

Good Evening,

Well here it is! Took me quite a while to finish but I'm so thrilled with the result. Just hope my friend's wife will love it too. Wanted to create something that was feminine, colourful and something just for her. Can't see me replicating this one again not on this scale.  The original mirror was a horrible blue/orange-y colour so I crackled the background and then went to town painting the daisies, tulips, lavender and berries. Not sure all of these would necessarily grow at the same time but hey, it's my artistic license! lol



I took some photos along the way to show how it came together.  The mirror measures approx. 19 inches in height and 13.5 inches in width so it's quite a big project.  I kind of went with it in terms of the colours, distressing and choosing what I felt worked as I painted.  It's certainly given me the confidence to attempt large projects in the future.  Hope you like it. Take care Zo x
