Altered Sardine Tin - Sherry step 1
Hi All, Sherry here.
(post moved by Sarah)
I posted off my tin to Lou on Monday (8th Oct).
This is how it started out:
After several thorough washes it was ready
(the sardines in spicy tomato sauce were tasty by the way!)
I couldn't face gesso and drying and painting and drying,
so I took the easy option and covered the outside and lid with
Christmas sheet music using Liquitex matte medium.
I die cut one set of wings from the lid
and embossed them with a small patterned folder.
The wings are attached to the back of the tin with a gold brad,
so can be removed for posting.
I left the inside blank and the rim coloured with a gold pen.
I'm looking forward to what Lou does next -
