Hi you all. Here in Germany it is wet, wet, wet. The skies are grey, the trees are dripping, and the birds were all sitting dismally on their branches, looking very fed up. I decided to stay home and do some crafting. As this week was wet everyday, I got a lot of crafting and reading done.
In my Christmas parcel from my dear friend Diane, I found a batch of lovely little tins waiting to be altered.
One had already been beautifully altered by Diane, using a Gecko Galz image:
I love altering tins, so inspired by Diane's good example, I got to work. I covered the lid with a scrap of paper, and added an epoxy image.
Then I made a little concertina book from a strip of the same paper. I distressed and stamped the paper from both sides, but it is not showing up well on the darker side. I added various images of vintage ladies dancing and moving themselves into artful poses:
I added my text to the lighter side:
And fixed a ribbon into the base of the tin to hold the book:
Then I decided to add some crackle around the image using a crackle stamp, and varnished it over a couple of times to make it more durable.
I made a lot more, too, but I will keep it for another day! Take care, have a good weekend, and thanks for coming by!
