Altered Tin..

Over on DC we finally have an Altered Art forum - yay!

So Nicks has set a challenge - alter a tin. Well after searching in the boxes in the garage, I found a few tins.

I have never done a tin before. Decided to do the small red one and attacked it with some steel wool to take off the paint - Chris would not let me near the blow torch - have no idea why! So it has been painted, coloured, painted some more and things stuck on and it has ended up like this. The lid does not quite fit anymore - ooops! I enjoyed making the little book to go inside as much as doing the tin.
