Teeny Tiny Tin Blog Hop

This challenge was so much fun because it was different.  I got the little tins, and planned about 300 different things I was going to do with them.  I was going to distress them.  I was going to do a bead embroidery.  I was going to try something polymer.  I was going to make a tiny little painting.  I was going to make quilled flowers.

And then it hit me, I wanted to use fabric, with a little beadwork thrown in to keep it close to my passion.  One came out very country vintage old newspaper cool.  The other came out with gold lame and a painted-by-me pink lace flower.  I used ribbon.  I used a touch of bling-y thread.  I used a giant @.  Enjoy!

I had to laugh at your hundreds of ideas comment. That was me at first! I love , love, love the fabric and newsprint tin! Good color combination for Golden Sparkles.

These are so cute!! Love them! I'd have loved to participate in this hop, it looks like it was fun.

Michelle Mach said...

I love that you did both tins and they're so different! I find pink very challenging, so I always admire those who can pull it off. Very sweet!

Your "hundreds of ideas" comment was right on. That's exactly how I felt, too. Thanks for joining the challenge!

Amy said...

These are just gorgeous! I love them both so much but that pink & gold together really goes great!

They are both beautifully would be hard to pick a favorite. Lovely work.

Molly Alexander said...

What adorable tins you have created! I absolutely love anything old and vintage-y, and your newspaper tin is wonderful! I can certainly relate to the list of ideas you went through before you decided on your designs - I think I spent 2 weeks going through designs in my head before I actually started working on them! Beautiful job! :) Molly
