Getting a little crafty


A quiet afternoon at home and this is what kept me busy....I have confessed my fetish for handmade paper here and I also shared with you all the gift wrapping for my sister's wedding. Well, it was time to make use of all the left over scraps that I carried back with me from India.

The scraps of block printed hand made paper...



A very inexpensive wooden mirror from Ikea


mod podge and a brush...


I cut the paper into smaller pieces and then randomly arranged them to get an idea of the pattern.



And then I got to work.... the messy part with the mod podge. See the detailed technique here.

almost half way done...
And the result....My Paper Mosaic Mirror....



What do you think....? Like it....?

I'm still trying to find a place for the mirror.......on the wall...???



Or on the side table...?
