Don't Worry, Be Happy
A simple mirror frame but with such a lovely positive sentiment which you see everytime you check your reflection! The bare frame was painted with a very thin layer of white gesso, after the wood had been lightly sanded, to even it up a bit. Once dry, the surface was covered with various autumnal colours of Distress ink (another wonderful product that I could not do without). The flourishes are stamped, in Acrylic paint (Ranger Paint Daubers) using a stylised bird stamp from Elusive Images..... these are the tail feathers! Added the sentiment and once it was all dry, a coat of matte gel was applied for protection.
