Altered Tin – A Dad’s Gift

With a heavy heart, I have to say this is my last post for Petaloo, I want to put a big thank you out there to Jeff and Cheryl for giving me this opportunity and trusting in me to showcase their product, Their kindness and caring is over the top. Thank you so much for your friendships. Not a good bye but a see you later.

I want to thank the followers, consumers  and supports of Petaloo and the rest of the Design Team, for your support,  compassion and kind words.

So I will share a fun altered tin and card made especially for dad! You cant go wrong with rust, gears and steampunk. The tin is to hold all of Daddy’s sweet treats.


Enjoy the video and creative process.


Here are some close ups for your enjoyment

Because Brown is not a favorable colour for flowers, sometimes you just have to make them yourself. I used the Dajeerling Teastained   for the larger flowers and sprayed them golden yellow, with the Mini Mix I simply ink distressed them for the grunge look.


For the tin I used a rust technique to grunge it up and added the flowers and metal embellishments.


So the kids and I will fill this with daddy’s favorite sweet treats and leave the extras close so he can finish those off as well. (A sweet tooth in denial)

Thank you for stopping by today!
