Big Art Adventure - Alter a Tin


I've been wanting to join Rosie's and Linda's Awfully Big Art Adventure for quite a while but time hasn't allowed....until this week. I am enamoured with altering tins and had to do so for a blogging exchange that I've been participating in all year sponsored by the wonderful Marilyn from Unshelved Words. Our task was to create one tin to send to a different partner each season. This is the last one for this year but rumour has it that we're targeting special occasions next year. Check out Marilyn's wonderful Secret Santa Swap too!!

Totally beautiful artwork, Heather. The detail is awesome. I love the theme and the text you chose also. Hmmm, I have a few tins hanging around, but have never altered one. Perhaps it's time I did. You always inspire!
