Altered/recycled/Up-cycled Tin

Hello my dears,  what a miserable day it's been today, rain, rain and more rain!!! oh well I suppose it could be worse!! it could be blowing a gale as well. lol

I'm here to share a project that I made just for me,  I belong to a Scrapbook class/club that my Daughter and I attend regularly and our challenge for the next meeting is to decorate a can/tin after we have thrown it in the dishwasher.  Well as I don't have a dishwasher (well I do really) his name is John!! my dear hubby.  But my Daughter has one so she kindly threw 3 tins in for me, this is one of them.  Altered to sit on my desk and hold some tools that I use a lot.

I used some pretty wallpaper to decorate the outside and inside, I then coloured up this adorable Besties image called Tickles/Butterfly Kisses.  She has been coloured using my Flex markers and Derwent pencils for shading.  

The little pearl dots are a selection of some paper pearl pens that I bought a long time ago and just recently found them!!!  think I need some practise but they are bright and suit this cute image.

That's about it from me for today,  I'll be back soon though as I'm in the middle of creating another mini album, so I'll be showing that to you real soon.  Hope you're all having a fabulous weekend.
