Altered Ikea Mirror

I love altering Ikea mirrors this one has taken a long time to do First I sponge painted the frame in orange. Then I modge podged the frame with matt modge podge then I set about altering 16 children's wooden dominoes, this took quite some time I used a uni paint marker pen in gold to do all the edges of the dominoes I then altered them all in toning colours, adding gems, feathers, ribbons, buttons, butterflies and flowers. I must admit I am pleased with the finished effect.

Please excuse the dirty mirror section I have only just stuck the dominoes on the frame and wanted to get it on my blog ASAP .

Altered childrens Dominoes

I found a box of wooden children dominoes in a charity shop, well you know how it is I thought they were just right to alter, well I had them quite some time and done nothing at all with them so decided to have a little play.
The picture on the right shows the front of the dominoes before altering

The backs of the dominoes before altering

                                                                             I painted the dominoes with acrylic paints ((yellow ochre)I then stamped script in black archival ink over the top of paint both back and front. I then added embellishments. I have yet to add the ribbons I will use them to hang from my craft bag but they could be necklaces, brooches, key rings, bag bling, mobiles and many more things      
I also had a go altering some dressmakers pins I have altered and used these before, they are fab additions to cards and scrapbook layouts
