This is going to be good, I mean bad

I hope you will enjoy this please.  Have a chuckle… heck- roll on the floor with laughter if you like!  My friend Shelle Over at Dreamy Nest?{Not!} is having a Show Me Your Fail Party over at her blog today.  What a great idea, right?

I’ll be honest, I like putting my best foot forward in life and that includes my blog.  I’m not so keen on showing everybody my projects that stink, and trust me-I have them!  I’m stepping out of my comfort zone so without further ado…

I started off with this mirror…

Ugh, and it really only gets worse, in my opinion. I painted it white. I had some scrabble tiles and I thought they would fit nicely over that horrid weaving.  I painted them tan and then tried the crackle technique with white glue.

I painted the plain white glue over the tan and while it was tacky I painted over that with white paint.  It crackled and I started to arrange them.  They all didn’t fit as wonderfully as I originally thought, so I used my hammer to smack wedge them in. 

Anyone giggling yet? When I had them the way I wanted them, I used Gorilla Glue make sure they would stay put.  I always use too much of that stuff, and this time was no different.  Look at this mess…

Oh yes, the squares aren’t white anymore.  I attempted to add some color to this thing, by coloring them with watercolor pencils, and then lightly brushing them with water.  Then the glue dissolved because of the water-duh!  You know you want to see the whole mess, don’t you?

I think I’m a little nauseous.

Thanks for joining me today, and I promise something way more attractive for next time!
