~ Altered Zutter Distress it All Tin ~

When I bought my Zutter Distress it All, it came in this really cool tin. The neat thing about it was, I can fit my Smooch Spritz sprays in it perfectly, so I thought I would hold on to it and alter it one day. So here is a pic of the tin!! Check out how the lid already looks all distressed. That turned out to be so perfect, because I didn't even have to touch that tricky area.

Here is my altered tin. See how the edges of the lid are untouched. How cool is that!?! I used the paper from the Tim Holtz "Lost and Found" line. That pack is absolutely perfect for doing altered item projects. I added random pieces of metal, watch parts, bottle caps, twine, molding paste, spritz sprays, lace, old pieces of costume jewellery, Tim Holtz fragments, Dusty Attic chipboard crowns, and more...

The paper pack has a page with a ton of pictured bottle caps on it. If you take a one inch circle punch to them, they will fit perfectly inside of a regular bottle cap.

Well thanks for stopping by and God Bless!!

~ Some More Scraps of Darkness Layouts ~

Two more layouts using the Scraps of Darkness July Desire kit. I'm still having fun creating layouts with this awesome kit!! This first one is a little deep. I call it Vicious Traditions and I didn't put any journaling on the front, but I did print out some and stuck it to the back. Here is what it reads:

When I was a child, every Christmas there was a tradition of giving my Grandfather a bottle of Crown Royal. He always appreciated seeing it under the tree, sitting in it’s signature purple bag with gold stitching. I remember it always bringing a smile to his face. However, some traditions aren’t always good. I come from an alcoholic family on my mom’s side. Growing up wasn’t always easy and some of the things I witnessed as a child, are unspeakable now. With all that said, I rose above all of that. I was able to break free of a family with the burden of alcoholism and I never fell under the curse. I praise God for keeping the addiction away from me and I continue to pray for those that are still held captive by it.
I used the diecut bird for a mask and misted the small Prima roses with Maya Road mist and then I some Burgundy stickles to put on the very tips.
This is one of my Crumpled Daisy, formally known as a Scrunchy Flower. I just didn't like that title lol. I have tutorial for these that you can click on to the right.
The are painted vines that I did using a stencil and black acrylic paint.
So my Rylee is now officially a teenager :( They grow up way to fast. I did this page to show some versatility in the kit.
I sell these little napkin butterflies in my Etsy. They are super cute!!

Thanks for Stopping by and God Bless!!
