I took an altered tin course online from Joggles a while back and wanted to give it a try. I began by creating a background using tiny pieces of masking tape torn and burnished to the tin. Luckily a good friend was over while I was doing this. Otherwise I would have been driven crazy. I then used paint over top. The areas where the tape overlapped were darker giving the background depth and texture. This is where the course and I parted ways. Somehow my tin morphed into a scene assemblage with this darling little PaperWhimsy girl with her hand so jauntily on her hip. This piece now lives with a dear art friend in Texas.
