LESSology Challenge #19: Creative inspiration of Shahrul Niza


So, you enjoying all the design team's mirrored projects so far? We sure hope you would be inspired to play along with LESSology Challenge #19: Mirror, mirror on the wall. Let's check out what design team member Shahrul Niza did with this challenge, shall we?


Hello, it's Shahrul here.

Oh what a SWEET challenge!. I've always love hand mirrors and couldn't resist making one myself. Since I don't have a small round mirror I purchased one for just RM$3. And I'm going to use my old moldy large wooden spoon as the base :).

This is the finished mirror...

New and old items used;

I simply detached the mirror from the unsightly plastic holder. Filled the curve of the wooden spoon with tissue papers and foam tapes. 

Then distressed the back of the mirror a little bit so that the paint would chipped and became transparent. I did this by rubbing off the paint with a pen knife and a small scissors. Then adhered vintage rub-ons to the back. 

Here is the result of rubbing effort;

I filled up the gap between mirror and wooden spoon with some molding paste. While still wet, made imprints with hand-carved stamps. Let the spoon dry all night.

Once hardened, glued down a crumpled tissue paper all over for some texture. Then painted with champagne color acrylic, distressed with antique brown Stazon, added some bling, a rose and a handmade tassel.

Salvaged crystals from old lamp.

I hope you like it :). Let's get busy with all the exciting ideas and I can't wait to see your creations!. Hugs.

Wow! Wow! Wow! Hope you have all been inspired to get creative with your mirrors for LESSology Challenge #19: Mirror, mirror on the wall. See you on Monday when we announce all the winners for LESSology Challenge #18: It's a Wrap! :)
