Somewhere for my tools!

vanessatin The Saturday workout this week is to alter a tin. I have had my art tools in a plain old baked bean can for a while now so this was the ideal opportunity to do something about brightening it up a bit.

This is also my entry for the Objet d'art challenge where the main character is also a tin.

The stamps I used are Vanessa from Paper Bag Studios and the art background is from Stampers Anonymous.

The charms are from Tim's ideaology range ... vanessatin3 which I absolutely love ... no surprise there then.

Sorry about the awful pictures ... but What's a girl to do? ... I am no David Bailey!

Right - I need to go tackle a pile of ironing now ... I may be some time!

I already own a beautiful altered bean tin by Linda, and this one is just as great! :)
For those who don't know Linda, she's very generous with her rubbish - last time we met up she gave me some lovely potato and carrot peelings for my lunch! :)
