Week 4 with Carla: A Beautiful Mirror

Another breath taking project from Carla today, and I have to say, one of the best photographs with a mirror in it I've seen! (try it, it's tough!) She embosed the "A Beautiful Life" frame onto the middle of this mirror (love the frame within a frame!) the red bud trees in her yard are reflected in the background...



Did you know you could color images on mirrors with a water brush and water color crayons? I did not, and I am lovin the look here! The pink bow is so sweet and so unexpected on the mirror, but makes it oh so girly!

Here are more details from Carla:

Stamps: Gina K. Designs A Beautiful Life
Ink: Versamark
Accessories: White Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Aquapainter, Watercolor Crayons, Adhesive Pearls, Ribbon, 5x7 Mirror, Pewter Frame

I stamped the frame onto the mirror with Versamark and heat embossed with White EP. I colored the frame and flowers in with an Aquapainter and watercolor crayons, then added the bow and some adhesive pearls right on the mirror. "


Thank you, thank you , thank you Carla for doing such gorgeous things with "A Beautiful Life" this month, you have been an awesome guest designer! :) Please leave her lots of love today, and then let's go see Carla's blog for more inspiration!
