Fall Time Mirror

I just love all the colors of fall. The reds, yellows, oranges, just make me happy.  But sad to say these colors are only here for a few days.  How can I keep them always?  Art is always the right answer so off to my studio!

Sorry about the photo, I did not think when I made it how hard it would be to photograph it, but I think you get the idea.

1.  Start off with a white card stock and color with my NiJi Oil Pastels using red, yellows and oranges to make a wonderful background. Blend each color into the other.

2.  I found this mirror at the local art store (on sale) and painted it with Orange paint. Can you see that this mirror was a flower shape?

3.  I stamped onto the color card stock that I created with my personal line of stamps from SinCity Stamps.  I love this leaf plate of stamps and I have lots of great things planned for them.

4.  I cut each leaf out by hand and pasted each of them on the wood mirror frame with Nori paste.  I love the way this whole project worked out.  Sorry again about not getting that perfect photo.
How easy was that project?  Only four steps, so next time you see a mirror or frame, you know what to create with it.
Thanks again for stopping by
