A Sneek Peek

Okay I finished 8 tins and one steam punk altered jar to put in my Etsy Shop.

The problem with creating these tins is deciding just what I want to put on them.

This is just one of the tins and of course it was inspired by the hottest trend, Steam Punk.
I created the digital collage first and then glued it on the lid of the tin.


Then there is the decision of what to do with the inside. Should I leave them blank or embellish them in some way. This one has a metal key with the word "Dream: and a couple of gears to steam punk it up a bit :)


For the jar, I first created the collage and then glued it on the entire jar.


Then I accented it with metallic paint and sealed the entire jar to protect it.


Then I bent the copper wire to make the little heart with the cork screw dangle. I am happy with it....well...I might add a gear or two here and there.

I will have it finished and in my shop tomorrow.
