Some things are impossible to photograph!

You may remember that I mentioned that the PaperArtsy Glaze could be used on glass and mirrors. Well, the bathroom mirror didn't run away quickly enough! Apologies for the terrible photos, very tricky to photograph, especially when you're trying to avoid being in shot. The butterflies aren't smudged in reality, it's just that they are reflecting in the mirror. I used a piece of cut and dry foam to make an ink pad with the glaze in the same way that you would with flake n glitter glue and then stamped inkylicious winged things, an indigoblu butterfly that was part of a freebie set with a magazine and some small butterflies from a card-io set. If you slip whilst stamping you can wipe them off with a baby wipe. Once dry they seem pretty solid. Not tried using any cleaning products on the glass yet, just given it a good polish with a soft cloth. It actually looks pretty good in reality, even though 24 hours later Hubby still hasn't noticed it!


  1. Hey Cara, this is cool and you are right impossible to photograph. I am happy with the view of your bathroom, as I can now admire your Owl shower curtain...Cx

  2. That's a man thing!!! You wait till he has to clean the mirror and see if he notices then!

    Looks great too


  3. Fabulous decorated mirror Cara, brilliant idea and adore the owl shower curtain, Kate x

  4. Wow what a fab bathroom - just love it all.

  6. Cara, Leaving you another note..because !!!!! are totally not overused and YOU HAVE TO GET Critters :) Cx

  7. What a fabulous idea, I love it! My DH wouldn't have noticed either! LOL! x

  8. I love your mirror, what a great effect. I think it would have to hit my hubby on the nose for him to notice it too.
    Loving your shower curtain too.
    Have a super weekend. x

    Hugs Erika. x

  9. Hubby doesn't use the mirror I think Cara, love it ...though at first I wondered why on earth you were photographing a shower curtain. Well done.
    Thanks for the inspiration,

  10. Oooh your mirror is lovely Cara!
    Wonder how long it will take hubby to notice ;) Mine's the same, he'd probably be thinking it's always been like that and he just never noticed before lol

  11. Hi Cara
    How fab does this look? Would never think of stamping anything on a mirror.
    My husband wouldn't have noticed either lol!
    Best wishes.
