If you recall from a previous post I was asked to participate in a swap "Art-in-a-Carton" You create some artsy pieces & mail them off in a carton (or carton type item) to 3 fellow artists.
Cathy Minerva was the great lady that started me on to this. She sent some fun goodies in a can & I too used this idea. We don't drink anything in cartons so .... I found these fun little paint cans (at Menards) that I just covered in paper & embellished.
Then the fun task of filling them hmmmm I decided to include the things I love to make so that was simple;
1. mermaid shell ornie
2. pixie's in a pail,
3. faux cupcake,
4. fairy ATC's,
5. paper doll,
6. altered envelope,
7. art goodies (found objects)
So that in a nutshell er paint can is my version of art-in-a-carton

I had a blast & can't wait to receive my 2 other cartons but better yet hear what the other girls thought of mine. :0)
