Decorated Paint Can













I have had this paint can just sitting in my art room filled with treasured junk. It needed some life so I decorated it using lace, ribbon, ephemera, glitter glue, and vintage sheet music. I guess I should have taken a before picture but as usual I forgot. The cute little postcard, cupcakes with roses, rose cutouts, Marie Antoinette card and some of the lace, I received in my gift pack from Cassi of Cassi's Creations at the Petticoats and Parasols Workshop/Art Event. She has the cutest stuff for sale and is so talented!

Candy Dish Pin Cushion
