And so it was with rusty old tins.
You could turn them into anything you liked!
A scrap torn from an addressed envelope
Little paint brushes in a pot sketched onto a scrap of paper one night to ease the boredom at sea
And a prized possession - an artist's postcard from Paris from Uncle Jack
All put together to make this..........for this granny's pencils
Or paint brushes, (now that it has had a coat of matt acryllic to protect it.)
Who would have thought that a tomato tin.
Wrapped in re-cycled brown paper and dabbed with Expresso ink. An artist's painting from a magazine, a scrap of cotton lace, stamped images onto dressmaking pattern paper (used for packaging from a purchase from Very Mary), all of which were distressed, and a very vivid imagination of 'pretend' relatives - could turn out like that!
