Altered Tin Lids :)

Oh what you can do with a tin can lid !  I saved the lids off three tuna cans ( thoroughly washed I hasten to add !!!) Alcohol inked the lids & added the images. I had it in mind to make a wall hanger, but this was my first attempt .... I think I will be saving some more tin lids, & have another go, & it's   good for recycling :)

Altered Teaspoon


Required : 
  • One old teaspoon
  • Black Acrylic Paint
  • Paper image
  • Diamond Glaze 
  • Alcohol inks
  • Embellishments
First of all I painted the spoon with black acrylic paint.
Then dabbed eggshell alcohol ink here & there over the spoon, & a touch of metallic copper alcohol ink.
Next I glued the image of the lady on to the spoon.
Afterwhich, I coated the whole spoon with Diamond Glaze.
Then added the embellishments.

Bird dipped into melted UTEE

A chipboard bird, dipped into UTEE from the melting pot, & then stamped into with cogs & wheels stamp. I really love the effect of stamping into the UTEE.

Saturday afternoon spent stamping...

Spent a crafty afternoon today stamping.... & Out came the melt pot again. I stamped into the melted UTEE with a clock stamp & then brushed them over with some mica powders.

'You'll never know'- Painted the back ground card with acrylic paints. Then Stamped an arch shape, cut out & stuck to the background card. Stamped & cut out the girl image & added some computer generated words, few gems, & flowers.
