Altered Art

I was very pleased and proud to receive an email from one of my friends Irena Stefanova this week asking if I would like to be a Guest Designer over on the Kartishok Mix Media Blog.

I have been saving some coffee cans and storing my brushes, pens and mark making tools but have not got around to altering them.

So I came up with this for storing some of my mark making tools!!

My coffee can first had 2 coats of black gesso, the a coat of Pebeo Dyna paint in Silver. I wanted a metallic effect. 

I then played and added more colours from the Pebeo Dyna paint range in blue green, green and green blue!! I found these die cuts so glued into position and added some Pebeo Guilding wax also in silver.

The words were written with a Zig marker and the background I used some colouring pencils.

Fun and useful project, perfect for storing some of my collection of mark making tools. 

Thanks for stopping by, have a creative week!!!
