Altered tin with a lot of texture!

Still time to enter in the challenge on TIOT!
The challenge is to create something with some texture!
  


 I had messy fun altering this tin!
 I first glued some blotting paper to the tin, with gel medium from Golden. Then I added pieces of fabrics, and some ordinary flowers to it, also with gel medium, the centre of the flowers are beads. Then I painted everything with gesso, and sprayed with glimmermists.





I then decided it was too dark, too monotone, and added some white acrylic paint to
make it pop,

Now I don't know which of the two I prefer, LOL.

I am entering this in the challenge on
1. Make My Monday, which is also texture. 
2. The Artistic Stamper - alter something

  3. This looks fantastic Ellie! I like both of them too...though, the second one has a certain vintage charm to it that I like.

  9. Wauw, dit daagt mij uit om ook aan de slag te gaan. Ikzelf blijf eerder naar de eerste ( donkerdere) versie te gaan maar de tweede is ook prachtig.
