vintage garden

Encouraged by Pamellia I have made my own vintage garden in a fish can
( doesn't stink at all- I swear).
I started with applying thick black gesso( a bit scary!) on the whole surface. Then it was time for platinum texture paste. When it was dry I started colouring with Archival inks, Dylusions ink sprays and Inka Gold paint. I stamped some white flowers on the BG too.

Next I fussy cut the flower images  from the newspapers, covered them with gesso and added some twinkling H2O's paint on top.
Glued them together along with some die cut leaves and wee flowers. 
I made the fence from metal net found at my husband's ,,emporium".
Added some metal parts as well as some chipboard at the top. 
The support is made of an old toothpaste cup.

I would like to play along with:
