Pom-Poms and Tassels by Tracey Fairgrieve


Hello everyone,

Today I'd like to share a hanging mirror using the large round MDF Surfaces.

Here's those how to do's 

Pushing Textured Sand Paste through the Dot Circle stencil onto the surface, I allowed it to dry and repeated the process until I was happy with its dimension. Painting it all with a coat of white Gesso, I then removed the inner dots using tweezers to make the aperture larger.

Spraying the circle with a mixture of Teal and Gold Multi Surface Paint it was then ready to decorate using Multi Purpose Glue, a handful of embellishments including pom-poms and tassels...the height of fashion.

Diluted Chestnut Brown Multi Surface Paint was sprayed over the 
embellishments and allowed to flow around the circle, giving a tarnished look.

Liquid Pearls have been used to decorate around some of the gems,
with a circular mirror glued in securely. This was the reason behind 
removing those inner dots so the mirror would sit flush on the surface.

A deconstructed necklace has been used to create it's hanger and a 
hole punched at the bottom of the circle to hang two tassels on chain. 

Pom-poms and tassels seem to be everywhere this year,
I just couldn't resist adding them amoungst the bling..!

Wishing you all a fabulous week until next Thursday.

Take Care, stay safe and
Thank you for stopping by.

Crafty Hugs

    1. Eclectic sums up my lifestyle perfectly.. I've never been one for fashion or trends. I'd rather pick it apart and take out elements of interest. It's a real compliment Thank you so much xx

  6. I love all the buttons and gems Tracey, this would be a great way to use up a huge stash of buttons!! That was a great idea to put two layers of texture paste to give height and I love the colours you used for the background. Clever idea, beautifully executed! Anne xx

    1. So happy you like it Anne.. no surface is safe now!! xx

  7. Gorgeous mirror, dear Tracey,- all the pearls, buttons, and sequins oh my , what a great work, you did, and love the built up stenciling , giving such high to the bubbles- and then making all the bits pop. A wonderful idea, to use the necklace, for hanger- and looks so great with the tassels, too- Would it be an insult to call it a real hippie-mirror- I hope not, as that is what my old hippie soul is seeing and loving.
    Hugs from me-
    Dorthe, xx

    1. I love that you have discovered it's *Hippy Side* Dorthe, it's the magic of the mixture of colours and freedom of art. It's so good to play in this way and I miss working with my pre school children as we would play like this every day. I think you know my hidden hippy spirit. So glad you love it xx

  8. Love this Tracey, in fact I always look forward to what you create every Thursday as it’s always such a lovely surprise
