June over at RCS *

OH my the months are flying by.  I am trying to get ahead with my DT obligations and my mojo keeps coming and going just as quick as a blink of an eye lol.  
For this months challenge ver at Rhedd's Creative Spirit I put together a paint brush holder using a rice tin. coffeemate tin and a coffee tin. a few napkins and a piece of ribbon.  I basically covered all tins in napkins and glued the sides of the tins together.  I place them on a piece of mount board, drew round the shape and cut out - this is the base for them to stabilize them.  I painted the inside using black acrylic and brushed over pva for a sealant.  I did the same for the outside and then used inka gold to highlight the many creases of the napkins.  Then finished off with a scrap of ribbon from my stash. First pick is of the napkins used totally unrecognizable by the end lol

That's it for now - I had managed to utilize 3 of the many tins I have laying around lol.

Why not head on over to Rhedd's and join in with the fun xx
