always hungry for something new,always in hurry easily vulnerable this time related to my paper mache"researches" i was trying out a new technique which could improve my embossed design skills on paper.
looking for examples on the web i came across something totally new for me-embossing metal.then a lovely tutorial on youtube by atomicshrimp called "drink can tinwork"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B7vXNLpVafM
i was very happy having all the "ingredients"in hands- my husbands empty beer can, ball point pen and some precious time to try it out instantly.it was no success as probably our metal cup is too weak and broken when turned into the box shape.
at the same time i found Anjie's lovely blog where i could learn a bit more about embossing and the Mexican's tin can art thanks to her tutorial.i will show the picture of her metal bird and some colorful examples of the Mexican's tin cup art as she was very kind to allow me to use them in this post.
beside this her blog is full with awesome tutorials you may be tempted to try out.

thank you Anjie!
SOUL ~being this months theme at www.artistsinblogland.blogspot.com my little doodles on these upcycled tin cans are my flickering "embossed soul" this time on metal :).
this technique combines my love for doodling,pattern designing,creating something new,recycling and playing.hope you'll enjoy my little cards...
ps-the first card is also upscycled -made on good quality cardboard coming from my boys toy wrap.
happy when alike souls are being connected..............stay warm......................ildi
