It's in ....

... the Can! It's Canned! It's not Baked Beans ....It's my altered Can!
Thanks Linda and Rosie this was quite something!

I slapped two coats of acrylic paint onto a piece of callico and stamped and then coloured bits and pieces with Faber-Castell Colouring Pens and then added ric rac and some prima flowers!
Don't look tooooo closely, because then you will see that I smudged the stamp but then, in the words of Eugene Delacroix ....
The artist who aims at perfection in everything, achieves it in nothing.
This was fun and something different!
Hugs to all and thank you so much for your lovely comments!
