ALTERED TIN & BOOK















Found this little tin that was being used for pins that deserved a better life. Originally it was one of those trade card tins for the children called YuGiOh. No way it was going to stay like that with me around. I sanded, painted it with the Modern Masters Iron Paint and then the rusting solution, gave it a final coat of the blocking primer, gosh these paints are fun, I love it. Then made this fold out book to go inside. Again I have used rubons in the background and to fill in spaces here and there.

This tin is gorgeous ... I'm going to be altering a tin that can fit ATCs into it for a swap overseas soon ... yours has inspired me.

Thanks Di I had a great time altering it and if it has enspired you then even better.
