Painting on a tin.

After the holiday last year I bought some tins that were on sale at extra food.I used a couple for cookies and had 2medium ones and 3 larger ones left. One day ,a couple weeks ago I looked at them and wonder what I could do with them. It came to mind ,that I could do one with a CQ block.So I went with this idea. I cut the material for the border( green on the picture). I realize that I would have to glue it and as I never use a glue gun before I found it difficult to do for now. So I change my mind and decided to do a small painting instead. Kay was here and told her about it and she thought it was a good idea. I went ahead and sand the lid and prime it.The painting was done when I realize there was something wrong but could not put my hand on it. Showed to Heather and said my foliage on the trees looked like evergreen, I redone them and still was not happy and again Heather help. It was a trial anyway if I decide to do more sometime. The size of the tin is the medium one.


  1. Mum, your tin is very nice and the painting is lovely, it turned out very well and this is a nice unique idea to have your original painting on a tin which can be used over and over again.... it is nice to see you pick up a brush again after not painting for quite a long time and still do a great job! Hugs.
