I love the new Relics and Artifacts from Sandra Evertson--if you haven't tried them, I highly recommend it because they are loads of fun and really spark your creativity. Today I used 2 of the little resin pieces from her line as the focal points of my altered tin. As God's children, I believe that we really were born to fly and that is my inspiration behind this miniature piece. Here's a few close-ups...
I first painted the tin with 2 coats of Gesso, then spritzed different Distress Inks all over in pink, yellow and teal. I added butterfly wings to the little person as well as a tiny pin and I embellished the rest of the inside with Prima wood veneer pieces, metal filigree trinkets, crystals, flowers and bits of crocheted lace, doily and cheesecloth. Finally, I added this stamped sentiment from TCP (a fave) with Jet Black and added a Maggie Holmes salmon colored tassel to the top, then rubbed white texture paste all over the tin for a yummy-grungy look and feel. :)
and a last one of the backside just because it's cool, hehe!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you've been inspired to make something fun!
