Hey everybody!  Here is my creation: the "Soda Scenery!"

I started off with pop cans... you'd be surprised at how many I found!!  For this project I used Coca Cola, Canadian Dry (Club Soda), and Sprite!

I cut up the cans (very carefully as the edges were sharp!) and made my collage out of them!  I was inspired by Canadian summer paddling! (It's a picture of a person paddling down a river in his canoe... the pop cans were a lot more shiny than I expected, so the camera had a hard time capturing the true picture)

Some close ups:
(My guy in his canoe... he was made from the inside of a can and his canoe is Coca Cola!)

(The "foliage" on the edge of the river)

Thanks for looking!

Ooh, awesome!  What did you stick it to?  Were the cans hard to work with?  Love the idea.

Thanks for the comments!!  I used a glue gun and stuck the pieces to a piece of bristol board that I found in the recycle bin.  It wasn't too hard to do... just time consuming!  I used gardener's shears to cut the cans, so they cut easy! (just like paper!)  Thanks for looking!!

I would like to swap my knits (or amigurumi stuffies) for your handmade journal...pm me!
