While attending a creative retreat last month in Wisconsin with 22 girlfriends, my dear friend Lana, who schleped me, and I stopped by an Archivers on our way to the airport.
Archivers is a paper crafter's dream store come to reality. While in this dreamland I picked up (among other things!) a few metal tins reminiscent of Band-Aid tins from yesteryear. Only with handles...and pristine white...(blank tin can be seen in the photo background)
Upon returning home I proceeded to alter a tin using Ranger's alcohol inks, mulberry paper, a bottle cap and a chipboard letter, among other things. I opted to paint the lid black with acrylic paint, sealing with Ranger's new Matte Accents.
This will make an fabulous storage container for my very dressy tags, which I will adorn onto simply wrapped packages of kraft paper and natural white string ties.
For in-depth how-tos regarding Ranger's Adirondak alcohol inks I highly recommend Tim Holtz's second DVD, An Altered Journey Continued.
