I decided to run it through my Cuttlebug Machine,placing the tin in an embossing folder,went through easy !,the colour was gold,so it would have been ok as it was,but we cant have that can we haha.....alcohol inks was the answer,it took to them well,then just added a gem to center flower ,punched a hole in top and braided,I was so pleased with myself lol..........
I uploaded a pic of it to show my Flickr friends,then found this is not a new idea ! they are using beer cans as well !
My motto is DONT throw anything away ! now i have to find some beer cans today,hope my neighbours dont see me when i go down our recycle bin LOL
Now i have the answer for the covers of my Gothic Book,Forgot to say that I backed the tin onto thick card and edged it with melted Beeswax,just a protection for sharp edges,but saying that you could leave an edging of card showing,I fixed the tin onto card with E6000 glue.

These 2 have distressed inks backgrounds ,stamped with lace and old antique jewellery added ,the one at the top has Amber coloured stones which is not showing up very well.
I have to tell you about the Antique &second hand Market at Covent Garden on a Monday,if you are into old jewellery to alter for your art work,thats the place to go ! Whether its on every Monday I,m not to sure,I went thinking it would be the Crafts,what a suprise ! I was in my glory,and soooo cheap,I was buying handfuls of bits I had sorted out for £1 ,you need to think what you could use it on though.
Well thats 7 pages done up to now,I really need 12,then to make the front and back covers,I cant wait loveeee doing the covers,my minds working on it already lol..........
Thankyou Kim !

The theme is Spring ! so,my heading is "Wheres Spring".
This was a big challenge for me,but once started I couldnt let go lol,We are given a template to work with ,that makes life much easier,it wont be paper dolls every month either,I think sewing will be included on some,I,m not to sure,but if your into making dollies joinup !!
This one measures 6" from top to toe,I cut all the pieces out which i had transfered onto glossy card stock,using alcohol inks on all the body parts,(silver mixed with Meadow green)
Then stamped a daisy,cut round, coloured with sharpies,found a disc altered it by covering with a napkin flower for her tum.....The flower behind her head,I found in my stash,had to change the colour with inks to yellow,and used brads to fix her arms and legs on,so they move.
At the end of the month we are given a partner to swap with,its great to see what everyone comes up with,all the different creations from the same template !
