ALTERED ECLECTICS MONTHLY CHALLENGE ..."ANYTHING GOES"

Hi Everyone,
Well it's the 1st of the month so a new Challenge begins over a ALTERED ECLECTIC  What amazing work we had last month, you all are so talented it was a pleasure to have a sneek at your creations & blogs! The boss Elaine decided to set up this Challenge for anyone who likes to alter items...Boxes, jars,cans, picture fame , altered canvas... anything you can alter we would love to see...No cards, scrapbook pages or ATC's Elaine feels there is plenty of Challenge's out there for those!!! and we all agree...So lets get altering guy's... & don't forget to have lots of fun in doing so....

Well for my item this month is due to a Furrball who rules the roast.... so if you have one of These
                                            Who Loves Tuna then you have lots of  empty cans
                                           You can make one of these.....



 I hope you like it....Well my base was...Yep! you guessed it a Tuna tin Which I painted with Alcohol ink the colour is Raisin, I covered the outside in Black mesh blink,I cut the clock image for the inside from a Geko cloak image sheet then added a Tim Holtz Metal clockface I added beads around the inside & some flowers from my stash...the clock & crochet flower are also from my stash....The image on the back of the clock is from Ephemerasvintagegarden.com the sheet is named Time Flies..... Looking forward to seeing all your creations over at ALTERED ECLECTICS this month...See You There!
Thank you so much for your lovely visit today....Hugs May x x x

Fabulous! No more throwing away tuna tins!!! I've been thinking for some time there must be something that could be done with all these tins and what a wonderful creative make you've come up with, May. Love the kitty pics. I called my son to see them - he's been suffering with depression and they made him smile. You don't know how happy that made me! Julie Ann x

I had to laugh at the image of Tuna Disposal - such fun.
This is incredible. I would never have imagined it was a tuna tin in a former life.
I am sure you had lots of fun altering the tin.
So imaginative.
