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 -
how exciting!!
