June Helmar Challenge

I might have gone over the top on this one! This is the sketch posted on the Helmar blog

The first thing I thought of when I saw it was a hand held mirror. So that got my wheels to turning.  A quick stop at the Dollar Tree provided me with two wooden little princess mirrors. I removed the "mirror",  covered the wood with paper and then put the "mirror back on. The journaling circle was created on vellum with a very washed out photo of me that was taken in a mirror. It reads - I see myself looking at me. I see who I am, who I want to be. I see challenges I want to try. I see the desire to grow and improve. Mirror, mirror help me to achieve my goals and dreams. Let me believe in myself . Help me to see the very best in me.
 



































Here is a close up of some of the details.

I hope you like it! Thanks for a great challenge.
