remember the barbecued altoid tins?

                    I'm still having fun with the collage coteri workshop and did this  collage in the lid of one of the barbecued altoid tins. I  like the way it came out.

As always, thank you for looking and for all your wonderful comments.
Wishing you all a wonderful and creative day.
Hugs,

The "Watch Maker" is a great piece. Who would have thought an Altoid tin could look like this? I have a bag full of these tins...somewhere. Wish me luck finding them.
Love to you,
Debbie

This looks great! We must be on the same wavelength, because last week I told myself that I need to do something with the Altoid tins I've saved. Don't know if I'll barbecue them or not, though. LOL!

Maria said...

Oh Marie,

This is just beautiful I love your altered mint tin, are these easy to alter as I haven't done one of these before.

Very, very nice. Those collage pieces sure come in handy. I am very slow getting going on the class but I love what Mary has given us. I am anxious to see the one below, too! looks like another interesting piece.

What a wonderful idea. Anything can be turned into beautiful altered art, it seems! I might have to try this for myself.
