Angel Altered Tin


This is my altered tin which I made for our challenge at the Big Art Adventure. It was an M&S mint tin which I sanded and painted with alcohol inks. The image is from Artchix and the quote is one of my favourites from the list below. I now have a pretty container for my sequins!

What an improvement over a "common" mint tin. It makes my pin keep (a plain tin) look very pedestrian! Cranberry Fluff is a salad I make at Thanksgiving by special request of DD2.

I love this tin; it is gorgeous!!! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment. I have so many ideas in my head, it is hard to get them all out. I am especially inspired around Christmas time. I am inspired by all of my blog friends too, I usually see something that someone makes and then my imagination goes wild and then I end up making my own thing...
