SARDINES!!

On Paperarts Yahoo Group, we had an 'altered sardine tin' swap.
I love altering 'stuff', but, found this one a tad difficult.
I HATE sardines, I HATE the smell of sardines, etc. etc.!!LOLOL
But, for 'the sake of art', I managed to complete my task.

I decided on a Steampunk theme and rusted my tin with paint, added a Steampunk image, some old cheescloth, cogs & bits 'n bobs and an old rusty cupboard handle that I had found at Camberwell market.

Hey Lucy, this is a great piece. I'm curious did the rust kill the sardine smell?

Oh poor Lucy! Next time (if NEXT TIME ever comes) think of good things: omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D & B 12... It is great piece of altered art.
