Cake just so happens to be one of my favourite things :-) So, when I got hold of a large blank cake tin to paint (from Country Love Crafts) I was pretty excited about it :-)
It is pretty big at about 33cm across and about 12 cm in depth, and I though its round shape was just crying out for a Mandala style painting. I used DecoArt fluid acrylics which are fantastic for detail painting, and set to work painting around and around .....
I added some rusted washers in the centre of the lid along with some cord and ribbon, doodled some loose scribbly words with a white pen, and added a few collaged butterflies and a bit of glitter.
So now all I need to do is go and make a bit fat cake!
