Just a simple project ...F

I have been real busy with stuff so not much time crafting but this afternoon I decided I would get in there and alter something.

I altered a coffee mate tin and turned into a pot for my rulers, brushes and such like.

Once upon a time .........I painted the tin a bluey green.  I used a paper napkin and mod podge to stick it down.  I then used glossy accents over the flowers, butterfly and Eiffel tower. ( Pictures are not showing it up all that well so am sorry about that although the butterfly looks good) White acrylic paint wiped lightly at top and bottom of tin to give an aged effect. . I then wiped turquoise inka gold around the rim of tin.

THE END (lol)

I hope you enjoyed your visit and hope to see you again real soon.
