Boo! I'm finally back! It's that time of the year again where the kids (and sometimes kids at heart) play dress up and go around malls or their neighborhoods for some trick-or-treat fun. This year, I decided to do some recycling and altering by joining the Artz de Scrap Altered Metal Tin Challenge. I have lots of these rectangular shaped tin cases (they're a packaging of a certain pill which we sell at our store) so I thought of ways to make these tins useful by creating a Halloween inspired mini album case. I haven't started with the mini album yet since I'm still waiting for this year's Halloween pictures. But for now here's what I've done:

I sanded the tin and then painted it with some orange paint. I used a foam brush to dab the paint so it could have that distressed look to it. Decorated it with black patterned paper with the edges torn, and some halloween stickers. The chipboard house was painted brown and then topped with clear crackle glaze.
Will post more pics after tomorrow's Trick-or-Treating. And hopefully, I'll get to finish the mini album soon. :) Happy Halloween everyone!
