Finnabair inspired- altered water can

hello and happy Wednesday

I am so motivated and inspired by mixed media art on Finnabair, that I feel i am gonna alter anything and everything in my house. My husband worries about his spoons and forks and his hardware too.

The present blog hop challenge is very tempting.
here is my second entry to it. This is a toy watering can which i bought for my daughter almost 8 yrs back.

  1. I mod bodged crumpled tissue paper on it, basically to give texture and also to hide all cartoon printed  on it.
  2. then applied whatever I could found in my collected trash-- old keyring, broken hairclip, broken chain, some hardware stuff, mesh, beer bottle caps, handmade flowers, , and some burlp too.
  3. Covered everthing in gesso and then applied various colors of all kind, Some 13 art ones, some tim holtz, and some American craft  acrylic colors.
  4. I covered the handles with thin cord too.
  5. Covered the sprinkler with long beaded chain. I think it looks fabulous. :)
  6. Finally applied some golden powder and silver glitter to it.
here are few closeups.

Hope you will like it. Please leave your comments. they are the true motivators.
