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 .

I just love altering mirror Gill and have recently been altering dominoes so it occured to me the two would go well together also it works out cheaper than buying mount board to alter to put on the mirror so though I would give it a go I am so pleased I have given some of you idears alma xx
