A Haunted Mirror Without a Ghost

I finally did it: I made a haunted mirror, except the mirror is haunted by a landscape instead of a face. I was immediately taken with the idea when I read Grace at Domythic Bliss's post on how to make a haunted mirror. The possibilities are just endless with this. So I decided to use one of my own paintings as the picture. I took a picture of this piece I did a while back:

Moon and Hills, Grace Robert, 2010

... and turned it black and white.

I happened to have an antique frame I had redone and turned into a shadowbox that lent itself well to the image and fit the size of glass I had chosen as my mirror. Then I followed Grace's instructions and tada! Here's my haunted mirror. It looks marvelous in real life, but it was terribly hard to photograph. If I had a better camera and fancy lenses, I could have done a better job, but here are several photos so you can get an idea of it. It was incredibly easy to do too!


  1. I love it! Haunted and a bit spooky, but in the best way! LOVE the original painting, too. You're so talented! And everytime I come to your blog here, I view the winter as majestic and beautiful! Doesn't look as good here in Minnesota right now...;-)

    1. Thank you! I'm glad it cheers the winter up a bit for you. I'm sure it's not as much fun up where it's so very cold all the time.

  2. Fantastic! So beautiful. You've inspired me.
