Good morning! It's a beautiful spring Saturday morning here in Adelaide, I've been to the library, gone for a walk along the beach and now it's time for some coffee and blogging.
Today I have a decorated paint can to share with you. I love the way you can see through to the contents, being able to see the colours and textures of the contents adds another dimension, although I think it does make decorating a little more challenging.
For this can I used a Mo Manning image called Monkey Hug... I might be totally in love with her illustrations and find it difficult to colour anything else! The image is printed onto Kraft paper and coloured with Prismacolor pencils. Of course, with both a monkey and an elephant I had to fill the can with whole shell peanuts :o)
I have used a Fiskars punch to get the grass, and I cut the leaves on my Cricut using a free svg file from SVG Cuts called tropical leaf. I also used the Cricut and SCAL to cut out the words "nuts about you", which decorate the lid.
