A Bit more Dabbling

I had a pine framed mirror that was very orange in hue, so I decided to change it to hang in my downstairs cloakroom.

First of all I covered the frame in a biscuit coloured paint:

That toned down the orange a great deal.  Final step was to use pva glue to add tissue paper which I then dry brushed with cream paint.  The result was much easier to live with and here it is in situ:

Hope everyone enjoys their bank holiday weekend.

That is lovely Anne, and lovely to have you back crafting and blogging. I have missed you. Only took you off my side panel a couple of months ago - kept hoping you would be back.
Keep crafting and blogging.
Hugs, Neet xx
