Succulent Reflecting

I've had a couple of mirrors sitting in my cupboard forever (ok, well almost 10 years as it's my 10th anniversary soon!) which were spares from my wedding table centrepieces, so I figured it was about time to use one!
I haven't used a sketch for anything other than a card or scrapbook page before, so I thought I'd use the latest Aurora Wings challenge as an excuse to do something different.  Now I have a hot glue gun it is easier for me to work with glass etc. 

Products used:
  • Round mirror
  • Artificial flowers
  • ProMarkers - Leaf Green, Apple, Meadow Green, Pine, Aubergine, Violet, Amethyst, Lilac, Plum, Purple, Red, Bright Green, Lime Green, Lush Green, Holly, Mint Green, Canary, Pumpkin, Hot Pink, Magenta, Carmine, Moss, Olive, Khaki & Warm Grey 1
  • Prismacolor pencils

In my pursuit of not wanting a reflection, the mirror ends up looking like a bit of white here's another photo with a purposeful reflection!

I am entering my mirror into the following challenges:
  1. Aurora Wings - #70 Sketch
  2. If You Give a Crafter a Cookie - #102 ATG
  3. I ♥ ProMarkers - #367 ATG/No Patterned Papers
  4. Morgan's ArtWorld - #9 ATG

Purple Night at Ching-Chou Kuik

Hello all, are you getting back to normality after the summer break?  We're into the second week of our COLOURS OF FALL challenge at Ching-Chou Kuik and I hope you've enjoyed the inspiration so far.  Please enter here and be sure to also share your work in our Facebook group.

This week the team were given the theme PURPLICIOUS, which is great as it's my favourite colour.  I don't think the 'spooky' images should be reserved only for Halloween projects, so I've used 'Dark Moon' for a twisted easel friendship card.

  • Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Rectangles and Pendants dies
  • Sizzix Tim Holtz script word dies
  • Papermania gems
