So that's what I've been doing this week. I've put it on another mirror. I don't know what's harder--getting a decent photo of the embossed metal or trying to get a good shot of a mirror. I think, the metal is harder. It's like the camera just has a problem with the reflective shiny metal--I don't know. I just don't like how these photos turned out---it's definitely much better in person! So what I did was make small pieces like I usually do and then put them all together on the mirror frame.
These are probably my most favorite techniques that I do on metal--stamp and paint with regular acrylic paint. And I went a little steampunk style with the combination of old watch parts and Tim Holtz embellishments--
And using my Graphic 45 Steampunk papers
I also like using the paper punches on the metal--
And the finished mirror--(with some wax paper to get rid of my reflection : )
....best I could do--added to the fact that our days have been very dark and dreary here. If I waited for a bright day, it would be a while before I get better photos. The weather for the rest of the week is the same everyday--cloudy, rainy and in the 40's to 50's---not having a very nice Spring this year!
