Yep, it's an alter it week at Try it on Tuesday and the lovely Pat set us the challenge of altering a tin. I've been meaning to alter this one for a couple of years now so decided to get on with it!
I painted round all the edges with gesso then cut mirror board to fit the flat sides which I then ran through the cuttlebug. After sticking them in place I painted the whole thing with black acrylic paint and when dry rubbed it down with emery paper. A bit of sticky tape on top to finish it off and here it is
A box for my promarkers
Not my idea unfortunately but one I nicked from a fellow teamie, Neil. Thanks Neil, it's a great technique!
For more inspiration from my fellow teamies pop over to Try it on Tuesday and have a look at their altered tins, and don't forget we have a brilliant sponsor this week
Who are offering a £15 prize.
They have a fantastic alterable section over at their shop so if you havn't got any tins knocking about, take a looksee what they have to play with!
Have a great week
