A Decorated Tin Can and Video!

This was a gift from my daughter. It contained an Amaryllis bulb to plant.

I loved the flower...but the tin can intrigued me even more. 

This picture is before I decided I had to add even more's hard to know when to stop.

Here is what I did to decorate it.

I used paperclay and Iron Orchid Designs moulds to create several elements.
They're glued to the tin with Heavy Body Gel. 

Then I started to add Art Alchemy Waxes to the tin and the moulds using my finger and a soft brush.

The Tin Hearts are glued to the centers of 2 of the pieces. Archival ink stampings are added to the ridges using Signage II and Hardware II collections from IOD.

I made a short video after it was all done. 

Hope you enjoy and are inspired to play.
