Everything got another coating of gesso and then I sprayed with Victorian Velvet and Vintage Photo Distress Spray Stains. A little Honey Amber Silks was rubbed in here and there (I always think it transforms buttons!).
Once everything was dry I started adding my top layer of embellishments.
I have also used muslin and some hat pins and pearls. All the elements which to me make up the shabby chic style.
And so I now have a lovely altered mirror to hang in the guest room. A huge thank you to Chris for the lovely gift which I probably would not have thought of myself as something to alter!
Thank you for joining me here today!
