"Spring" Altered Altoid Tin


In my blogging travels, I visited one of my favourites, Unshelved Words, and discovered a post for an altered altoid tin swap with the theme of "Spring". I quicky signed up because I have discovered that I have a newfound love for assemblage. The tin had to include words or a quotation. The background I used is from a magazine. I layered to give dimension to the piece.

Another really lovely piece of art!!! How can you bear to part with it...for a trade....right?
I really like using magazine parts, so many appealing images out there; it worked splendidly for your background. That is one cute winged little girl!!!
