Mirror, Mirror on the wall

Hello!  Through my crafting adventures, I’ve been trying to refurbish things that I already have to make them fit with the decor of my home.  I recently took a plain old mirror and gave it a coastal twist!

I started by covering the mirror portion with paper and then used gold spray paint to coat the wooden frame.  I used a stencil to trace the semi circle scales and then used different shades of acrylic paint to paint the scales.  Once the painting was completed, I used a little glue and glitter to create a few sparkle scales.

I love the final product!  It’s beautiful!  I hope you enjoyed!!

Happy Halloween!!!

Happy Halloween!!! I wanted to show everyone my super fantastic mermaid make-up for my Halloween Costume! 
My friend Jessica assisted me with my make-up.  Here’s a quick run down of what she did!  I started with applying my normal concealer and foundation.  Jessica then applied an eye shadow primer to the areas of my face where I wanted the scales.  We placed a fishnet stocking over my face.  Make sure the fishnet is centered and they aren’t too stretched out in any spots so that the scales are a consistent size.  She used shimmery purple and green eye shadow to fill in the scales.  We removed the fishnet and then she created a mixture of white glitter and white eye shadow to create a highlighter to fill in between the scales.  I did my eye make up and added bronzer and highlighter.  Jessica then attached my gems, pearls, and shells.  We used eyelash glue to attach everything and it worked perfectly! 
I was so impressed with Jessica’s talents!  This is by far the best Halloween make-up I’ve ever had!!! Hope you all have a fabulous Halloween!!!
