Do you remember these? A few decades ago, anything popular from TV shows to sodas seemed to get the "mirror treatment"... and were usually prizes at local fairs / exhibitions. Even though I love the iconic image of Nipper who lived during Victorian times, I didn't think the mirror itself would really suit my studio decor. But I did love the detail of the inside scroll work, so I laid down my $ 3 and brought it home.
Now the decision: do I replace the mirror image with a paper one of Nipper, or of something else?
I perused the incredible selection at my favorite online graphics site The Graphics Fairy and came across this sweet vintage painting of birds. With a bit of adjustment to make the image fit the oval (I painted in the top, bottom and one side) I printed it out and coloured it in with sepia-toned Copic markers.
I think it looks so cute hung behind my old bird cages in my Victorian Studio!
Since she provided the super cute image of the birds, I am entering this project in Karen's Brag Monday for the very first time!
