This is an altered Altoid tin with a Paris theme that sits on my desk.
I used alcohol ink in brown to dye the sides of the tin.
On the front I decoupaged an image from Pinerest that I sized to fit using Picasa, then added a few pink mulberry flowers and a couple of white stamens. On the edge I used a bronze colored glitter glue for a little sparkle.
I also scattered a few clear rhinestones around the image.
For the inside I glued a couple more images from Pinterest that I sized to fit.
And inside the lid I glued a few more mulberry flowers. Again I used a brown alcohol ink to age the inside of the lid and edges of the images.
I glued a vintage style brown paper to the bottom to co ordinate with the other colors of the piece. When everything was dry I gave it the piece a coat of Mod Modge.
I found this mini version of Paris on Pinterest, sized it to fit, cut out and distressed to edges
to give it a used and loved appearance as though it had been played with many times.
It is just a fun little piece that makes me smile when I see it standing on the top shelf of my work desk.
