Ok. Here is my can lid project. The photo is not real great, but it's the best I can do right now. Hopefully a friend of mine can get a better shot at work tomorrow. There are a couple of touch ups needed, but I should be able to submit it on time for purchase consideration. Yippee!

So I haven't had time to work on the can lid project. I've been too busy cleaning and getting ready for the book club I hosted Tuesday. I came home today to find that my husband had completed the frame for a project I finished in January.
This is the same tissue paper and matte medium that I am using on the can lid project.
Hopefully I will have some time to work on the can lids project this weekend. The deadline for possibly submitting it for purchase consideration is April 1. If I don't get it done this weekend I'll have to wait till next year.

My latest project is kind of a "recycled" piece. It's a tissue paper and matte medium painting on a canvas. Then I am going to add can lids using Shisha or a variation of it. Shisha is Indian mirror embroidery. I did a mock up in Illustrator to see if I was crazy to even try.
I've got the background on the canvas now, but it's not quite the way I saw it in my head. So.... I have been living with it for a few days. I think tomorrow I will try adding some of the lids. What's the worst that happens??? I can always collage over it!
