Altered Tins

Hi there ...
I am really suffering with my tummy today ... there is only one thing to lift my spirits ... and that is playing in my craft room ... actually I have been waiting on a delivery too, so I couldn't go out (good excuse to play don't you think?) ...
One of my great loves is altering things ... I could browse blogs all day ... looking at all the creative talent and gaining inspiration and a multitude of ideas ... and today was one of those days when I was itching to alter something ... it happened that I had three of these ordinary tins ... just waiting to be prettied up a little 


I am a great fan of The Graphic Fairy and often play around in Print Shop with their images and that's just what I did today ... I used a background paper from Digital House Design and then added the graphics I wanted and printed onto self adhesive paper which I used to cover the tins ... This is the result ...



I wasn't quite sure what to do with the lids ... so I used some white Acrylic paint to first make them a little distressed then printed more graphics and cut them using my SB 


I quite like them ... what do you think? 


At the moment I'm ready to cover anything that doesn't move ... and as my eyes are darting around I'm thinking "what's next..." 

Hope you're having a lovely day ...
Thanks for visiting
