Altered Tea Tin:
Oh my! Here we are at Wednesday. I have been so terribly busy and when I do have a moment in the craftroom, my creation usually ends up in the garbage. SO frustrating!!! On a positive note: the sun is shining and my plants are enjoying every minute of it. Oh how I LOVE Spring!
I did make time to tackle this tea tin that has been sitting, watching me, and asking me: please make me pretty!!
I used many scraps from my ribbon/fibre scrap bin. Most I have no idea where they came from. I have burlap, lace, gold ribbon, and one rope-like product. I used a gorgeous collage digi sheet, Come For Tea, that I pieced together horizontally and used as my background paper. And it got finished off with stitching and some metal embellishments.
Tea Tin Ingredients: The House Across The Bay digi sheet, Bead Landing metal pendant, Jolee's Boutique Jute flower, My Mind's Eye burlap, stash ribbon/fibre bits, tea tin. Tools: sewing machine, EK Success corner punch.
I made this tea tin for the following challenges: Simon Says Stamp and Show - favorite stamp, Frilly and Funky and Tando Creative- alter it, Papercraft Star - stamp it, Stampin' Sisters in Christ - natural elements, The Pink Elephant - for mom.
Okie-dokes, that's it for me today - I am off to work, then home to prepare for a garage sale (seems to be endless preparations), then up to the craftroom to make a card. Phew - I'm tired already ;)
