Altered Tins Finally Finished !!!

My Altered Tins are finished after working off and on for the last few days on them. These are the first ones I have ever created. At first I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with them but after just "jumping in" so to speak they really became a lot of fun to work on. I hope the recipients like them as much as I did making them. There are 3 of them total and the pictures below show the fronts, tops and the inside of the lids. I lined them all also.

Now on to finish the tags and the postcards...

  1. They are beautiful, Stephen!! I can't wait to do more swaps next year - hopefully I'll get one of your creations then. ;o)

  2. Wow! Stephen, your tins are gorgeous. I love 'em! We have the same blog layout...brillant minds think alike!

  3. OMG these are wonderful makes me sorry i didn't sign up for the swap so i would get one of these

  4. This are really great! You are very creative Stephen.

  5. Hello Stephen,

    I like ALL your tins !
    I love the colors you used : the first one is done with alcohol inks , I guess ?
    Are the second and third tin in copper color or did you colored them like this. I also like the hint of blue and green on the copper. Inks or paint ?

    The collage on the inside of the lid is a hidden treasure : people can still use the tin to put something in it, but there is a nice secret on top :)

    I didn't play also in this tin swap :(... but I will recieve one of your vintage pages :)

    greetings from belgium
