Friday morning sky

Hi Everybody!

The storm seems to have blown over, and it took quite
a lot of trees and branches along with it. Today is
cool and clear and the sun was shining again, so
that was good.

Some of you may have seen this mirror when it was on my untidy
table being altered:

I remembered to take a photo almost at the beginning. The paper in the middle was just to keep the mirror from getting too dirty:

I threw lots of different scraps, pastes, paints, crackle etc at it:

And here is the finished result. The idea was to look at it first thing
in the morning to improve my attitude:

I am linking to Paint Party Friday.

 The sky this morning was beautiful:

Wishing you all a great weekend!
Have fun, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
