Altered Art Tin.

We have a new section on Docrafts for Altered Art, and I am spending more and more time on there, and loving every minute.
The people that use this section have wonderful inspirational galleries, full of wonderful ideas and innovative projects. I just cannot resist trying my hand at some of them.
The picture shows my Altered tin, and is for a challenge on the Altered Art section.
It used to contain a jigsaw, and the picture and measurements etc were on the tin in glossy paint.
It took an age to remove the paint by sanding it.
I then covered it with blown vinyl wallpaper, which I attached with Araldite rapid.
I then painted it with some metalic paint given to me by my daughter Angy. Then I stamped and embossed it with sparkling black and silver embossing powder.
The images are stamped on black card and embossed with silver embossing powder, cut out and attached with more Araldite rapid, I then added metal chain and bits and pieces and the black gems, the "Handle" on top I found while out walking my dog. lol. waste not, want not, is my motto. lol
