i'm a massive fan of making anything i possibly can from marbles - you know, magnets, thumbtacks...um...m ore magnets...anyway, i thought i'd try something different.  I got the mirror for a dollar at the op shop (aka thrift store for the benefit of you star spangled sisters).  it was painted a horrid green colour with yukky little pictures beach huts that looked like they'd been cut out (badly) from wrapping paper decoupaged on - i wish i'd taken a before picture actually, it was almost worth keeping as it was, it was so fabulously horrible.
However, common sense prevailed, and I painted it shiny black and superglued some marbles i'd prepared earlier to it...tada!



okay, maybe I exaggerated and it's not quite profoundly lovely, but i like it.  Grin

Wow! That's amazing idea!! Somehow it's quite punk, reminds me of my teenage years...black leather jackets, full of band buttons and stuff like that. Anyway,  I can't wait to get home and start working on these!
