Art Miracles Reflection..altered tuna tin!!
outside painted with turquoise and copper
lots of beads
an old watch and little praying charm
My friend Mary has made a great video on how to alter sardine tins..check it out here. I decided to have a go so decided to buy some tuna slices, mackerel and sardines in tins all in the name of art of course..mind you they do have omega 3 in the fish and that is supposed to make you brainy..lol! I like the mexican day of the dead type of shrines with their religious imagery so decided to have a go. Great fun and a good way of using up all your interesting odds and ends..the beads and devil card are all the way from kim in arizona.
I got a great package today from my friend Trine in Denmark..isnt the outside great with runic writing and stamped fish...I love the stamps on it too courtesy of a nice Danish post office lady. I love all the Danish newspapers, book pages etc in it and a great little book for my sons all about "A mole who wants to find out who pooed on his head!"..my sons absolutely loved this and now want me to translate it...I am glad for the Google translate button.
