I was very excited back in autumn when I found this unique frame at a second hand market.
After much trial and error I removed the backing paint and some of the reflective surface from behind; then added my own finish, as you can see here...
Then I etched the rain of women across the front, using various masking layers.
The final stage is to decide if the original baubles will be added and to hang it.
This step is crucial as the lighting and the viewer's orientation to the piece changes the effect dramatically.
I've gilded the original tassel trim that came wrapped around the mirror.
'Love bombing' often takes place at the outset of whirlwind romances and is usually directed by sociopaths or narcissists.
Targets are idealized and literally bombarded non-stop with attention that seems like love and can cause high levels of infatuation. The target is 'swept off their feet' and is unaware that it actually is a manipulative means to gain attention.
