A Potential Rocket Scientist's Little Tin Of Treasures
It's the last week of Steampumk
at Make My Monday http://mimchallegeblog.blogspot.com/
and this week Cath would like us to make ANY THING BUT A CARD
I bought this tin in Llandudno in North Wales
I think its a tobacco tin :o)
I thought I'd taken before photos, in fact I'm sure I did but can't find them on the poot! It was originally a silver tin with a picture of Elvis on the front!...with apologies to all Elvis fans... he was scrubbed off... :o)
This photo shows the underside of the tin and the inside of the tin lid.
Now I'm looking at the photographs I think I should've aged all the papers and stuff... why didn't I do that ?! hey ho.
I managed to add some distress using cotton buds and kitchen towel... now looks oily :))
All I will say is thank goodness for tissue tape, my box of SP goodies picked up from places like eBay and markets including a French one ooh nearly forgot the 50p box in B& Q.
A 1918 book of Land and Mine Surveying also came in very handy, there's not much difference is there? between a rocket scientist and a surveyor LOL. You need maths for both ! ;o)
Being a member of the fabulous Make My Monday Design Team as certainly got me out of my comfort zone. This is a first for me... I only usually alter things at workshops!
Looking forward to visiting your Blogs to see what you all make...
