altered candy tin can tutorial

at last, i would be posting my 4th published material for READY SET CREATE (august-september issue) here featuring the

ALTERED CANDY TIN CAN



i did this article way back months ago with a siding of tutorial and so happy to share it here on my blog.





the process:
dab dab alcohol inks on the tincan




i also used KI lace cardstock. cut into strips.

after adhering the strip, i brushed it with Mod Podge to seal it and add glossiness.

for the crackle effect which you may all be familiar with, i used the red glaze as the base and the old paper color as my choice.

i also used distress ink( fired brick ) for the frontal coating of the cracks.


finally, what evolved was an accent of flower and a cracked swirl to go with a metal bookplate.


thanks for looking!
