Art Adventure & Sat workout "stamp on acrylic" challenge



Decided to paint and alter a tin for both these challenge sites. Layered loads of papers onto a tin then added paint and distressed it. Stamped some swirls and the words "create art". Used chipboard flower then covered it with painted serendipity paper and glued some rusty nuts and bolts for the centre of the flower using the marvellous anitas 3D gloss. Made a wire hanger for it and am going to use it as a hanging pen pot.
