I just posted a new challenge over at Sketches for You, and I'd love if you played along! The challenge this month is to alter a tin. You can purchase a tin at your local craft store or (and this is my favorite way to get a tin), you can wash any empty tin that had food, mints - whatever - in it and alter that! Here's the first tin I want to show you:
Here's another example:
I challenge you to work with your supplies and cover a tin. I'll tell you a little bit about adhesives. I usually use super tape (red roll) to adhere paper. Then I cover with some sort of decoupage medium. I think Martha Stewart has a great decoupage and sealer and I use it often. However I also like paper Mod Podge. It's nice to finish off your projects with a sealer so that they are protected.
I'd like you to load your projects right in the post on Sketches for You, so that I have easy access to them. I am really excited about this prize for this challenge!!
I am going to randomly select a winner to receive a $10 gift certificate to The Cutting Cafe. The Cutting Cafe has amazing images and templates that work for cards, scrapbook pages and altered items. The winner will be able to select what they want - and $10 will go very far!!
This challenge runs through the whole month of September. you must have your project loaded by September 30th at 11:59 pm CST. I can't wait to see what you'll come up with!!
