Altered Spinach Cans?

Yep, you heard (read) it correctly! I altered two old spinach cans as an entry into Discountpapercrafts Design Team call. I was in the mood for a little Shabby Chic! Check out this picture:

So Cute!! I started with a base paint of vanilla and coated the inside of the cans and the shadow box. I used an old picture frame shadow box as my base. I went over some of the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink and mod podged some of the corners with some old newspaper that I had in my stash. I also added a Tim Holtz glass bottle to the arrangement with a little of the vanilla paint on the inside. A couple of silk flowers, bottle caps and some flowers later..TA-DA!!!

I handmade two huge flowers from different types of lace that I had, some seam binding and trim.I topped that with a resin/pearl rose for my center. There are two of these flowers on my project.

I added some lace and pearl trim to the bottom of the box for some definition.
And lastly, I topped it with a sign that says "create" and added chinese braiding and flat pearls to the rim of the can. 
This project is beautiful (to me) and I am so proud to have this on my desk to look at..
I wish all the applicants - Good Luck!!'
Thanks for stopping by
