I hope you've all had a super week so far!
Since Mother's Day is in just 2 short days I wanted to share a really fun idea I have been sharing with folks on my blog. It's an altered candy tin filled with 10 ATC's.
The tin it's self has been covered with a few of the beautiful papers from the Glitz line - Laced with Grace which I just love. It's got both an edgy and vintage at the same time. I inked the edges of each panel with the Paris Trunk Sepia Ink and glued each one into place.
I embellished the lid with a chipboard letters which I painted with Maya Road Mist and a beautiful image from the collage sheet Ladies Who Lunch AP477. I've also added a few vintage buttons, tiny flowers which were colored using Maya Road Mist and finished it off with a touch of glitter glue and tarnished gold tinsel.
The inside was embellished with a photo of myself when I was a couple years old along with more Glitz Paper and a funny computer generated sentiment taken from my Smart Aleck remarks list on my blog. I glued 3 magnetic strips to the back of the tin so it could be mounted on a fridge or other metal surface.
And I filled it with loads ATC's each using a different image from the following collage sheets: Ladies who Lunch 477D; Victorian Actresses 536D; Ooh La La 577D and Playing Around 951D. Each ATC background was created using a different technique incorporating everything from waxed paper, crayons, embossed Metal and much much more! If you're interested you can check out my blog ~ Ink Stains ~ for instructions on each card.
I hope all you Mom's out there have a wonderful weekend!
