Tin Can Alley Challenge






This is my entry in the Tin Can Alley Challenge.
I decided to go for an under the sea theme, as I had lots of mermaid stamps etc that I hadnt used very much. I like mermaids , have done since i was a little girl so it seemed appropriate to put them on here so I can look at them while I work.
Oddly enough Ive been thinking that I needed something to keep my paint brushes in now that im painting more, so its a perfect solution all round. Thanks to Rosie and Linda from the Awfully Big Art Adventure for the inspiration.

Very nice! Love the colors and the theme. It makes sense to have something pretty to hold your art tools. I had all mine in a big metal bucket from Michael's, but now that my paintbrushes are separated out into my decorated tin can, I'm inspired to make separate pretty ones for my other tools. After all, as you said, we're going to be looking at them all the time! Thanks for sharing; this really is so pretty.

love your underwater theme- I have never done many rubber stamps- but I would like too- I suspect they can be very addicting. Thanks you for stopping by to see my tin. Hope to run into you soon in blogland.
