Magic Mirror with CTMH Mischief B & T Paper

Mirrors can't really build self-esteem, that comes from within.  But sometimes we all need a boost when we look in the mirror and aren't feeling like it is a Good Hair Day.  I made this for my older dd.  She is beautiful, no matter what her hair looks like!  It would be nice if she realizes it and sees the reflection that others see when they look at her.

This was a very plain wood mirror and easel from Ikea.  I painted the edges black on the mirror and the entire wood easel with acrylic paint.  The front of the mirror is covered in one of the new CTMH Mischief B & T papers.  After gluing, it helps to smooth it out with a rubber brayer. The mirror is outlined with Silver Glitz Glitter Gel. (CTMH Z1482)

The rosettes are made from a variety of CTMH papers.  The striped one made such a pretty design!

This one was layered with some of the new gem embellishments that come in the Heirloom Assortment (CTMH Z1635) and a 2" black card stock scallop with a stamped sentiment on top.
