Altered Vintage Mirror with VIDEO TUTORIAL for Little Birdie Crafts

Welcome to my creative space!

I found a tarnished and chipped mirror in a thrift store. It had seen better days, but I just adored the intricate design on the back and thought it would be a lovely base for a project. I used Little Birdie Gesso and Multi-Surface Paints to give it new life. It’s decorated with amazing flowers from the Celebrate Life, Shabby Chic, and Fairy Sparkle collections along with Primed Chipboard pieces and a clock cut with the Timekeeper die set.

Close-up photos and more details can be found on the Little Birdie Crafts Blog HERE.

  1. Dreamily, immensely beautiful creation. The soft, sweet hues are upbeat and ever-so-lovely, just as this whole project is. What a stunning alerted mirror you've created, Tracey.
