Eating all these mints in order to get a nice tin to use......... recently did a 1;1 swap with a friend from Docrafts, she sent me the most awesome 'ATC'.... well not sure what she called it but it was ATC size. I though am a bit 'off' ATC's ATM, so asked if she would mind if I sent her something other than an ATC... so here it is.....
Georgina received a altered peppermint tin from her all time heroine Heidi, so of course I just had to get one to play with myself (just call me copycat)
I sandpapered the paint off and then gessoed it, the rest is just a mixture of paints, bits heated with the heatgun so that they bubbled... the inside is filled with Jewels which befits the 'King Tut & treasure' theme.
The good old faithful Cropodile came into it's own to cut a hole in the side, which is where I hung various 'charms'
I hope it is liked by it's soon to be owner!
All this was a welcome diversion from some bad news I received today, crafting is a terrific distraction, relaxation, therapy and just pure enjoyment when you are happy, in fact it fits all moods!...................... Long Live producing old tat!!
Good times ahead
