BUT - it's cool.
I love doing altered items, but I don't enjoy:
- Trying to line things up straight, as that is not one of my spiritual gifts
- Wrapping paper around round tins because it always gets a little off and then the adhesive is already eternal and you rip it off, cuss, throw everything away and decide that people don't really need presents anyway
Now if you're like me, you sometimes buy new toys and neglect them, which is what I did with all these things. But then, when I found them all in a little pile together - VOILA - a stampy epiphany occurs! In this case, I altered a tea can and filled it with crafty goodies.
Stamps: Technique Tuesday (Provence alphabet and Fall on me) Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa Brown Paper: Claudine Hellmuth Sticky Back Canvas Accessories: Golden Fluid Acrylics (Pthalo Blue, Green Gold), Fiskars Easy Stamp Press, blank tea can
It was so cool I had to get it on film. I know - two tutorials in a row - pigs are probably flying around outside right now. Don't get used to it!! :)
But here's the video PROOF that I have actually played with some of the things I've bought. Click here if you don't see the player. And after you watch it - create art! :)
