I purchased this plastic mirror last minute for a jewellery booth many years back, and since I disliked how tacky it looked, it was immediately put away after that event so I didn't have to look at it lol.
Anyhow I re-found it and decided to 'deco-den' it just because. This is not my original idea by the way. When I was an intern (around 1999) at a local bags & accessories company, the boss requested me to decorate two table mirrors as frou frou-ish as I could, with cabochon and ric rac samples and scrap pink feathers because we had just revamped the stores with a fixed colour scheme. Haha, good times. Best thing was customers asked if they were for sale... unfortunately no. The mirrors did manage to get customers to stop by the shop so that was good.

Of course, the table only remained this neat for about 10 minutes and then I started laying out scrap papers and painting equipment - a friend had commissioned a set of paintings for her boutique in the style of that black lace painting titled 'Mourn' (still available in my Etsy shop by the way) and I could only start when the mess is out of the way.
The two dolls there are Licca and Jenny, and 3 Licca doll heads which I have yet to purchase bodies for.

This pretty lass digi stamp is titled "Ribbons in Her Hair", I made the original draft a few years ago and she was meant to be an acrylic painting. Imagine this... a nouveau-style octopus girl! Can't remember why I abandoned it, I think I didn't feel like painting during that time, moved on to a lighter new sketchbook and forgot all about it. Recently the old sketchbook was rediscovered all dusty and yellowed from my climate, flipped through it and decided she could be a digital stamp illustration instead. Of course her octopus tentacles were erased and she got a nice flowy skirt.
She is 7 inches height, 300 dpi jpg format, available in my Etsy shop as an instant download:
I am currently working on a set of paintings for a friend, and tweaking my vintage shop which SEO I had neglected; so that is taking up a bulk of my time to fix, also I have an upcoming fair to prepare, so new releases of digis will be slightly slower for this period, please keep a lookout for a new freebie which will be out in a few weeks.
