CCC # 30
StudioL3 blog has us altering metal with paint. It's always fun to see what technique from Tim's book we'll be doing next! I started doing these challenges on week 14 I think, so I missed out on the first 14 week's! But, I am glad to have come across her blog to join in, and have met some fabulous artists there! So my take this week is an altered pop can. What? you say?! I saw this done in a Stampin Up! idea book awhile back and thought it was a neat idea. I cut the can apart and used the tattered florals die again! I think I'm going to wear this one out! After die cutting, I used an embossing folder to emboss all the pieces. I started painting until I was satisfied. I also sprayed a clear finish over all the pieces so the paint wouldn't scratch off, that's why it's shiny! Once I assembled the flower, I didn't know what to do with it! Since I made a headband yesterday, I decided to make a barrette. I covered the plain barrette with ribbon, then with wire attached the flower. The leaves are from May Arts. I really didn't want to show the back of it since it's not very attractive, but who will see it on my head anyway?! Just wanted to show that it is a pop can. Have lots to see at the blog now, so let's get to altering that metal!
