Recycled Tins and Lavinia Stamps

Recycled Tins and Lavinia Stamps

Use any small tin that you like.  Using a piece of card, trace an outline of the outside and inside of the tin.

I covered the tin with a coat of white Gesso. This step can be skipped if your aer OK with the color of your tin.  By applying Gesso, you will be able to ink or paint the tin as you wish.


Using the pattern I created from card stock, I traced, cut out and decorated each panel.  I used various distress oxide inks and water here. Using the the Lavinia stamps from Tree Scene, I added these for the background. 

Using the smallest Lavinia stamps that I had (Tree Scene, Pippin ,Fir Tree 1,Fir Tree 2,Wild Hare Set) I stamped and fussy cut each one.

Now the fun begins...start by placing your panels in/on the tin.  I used just regular craft glue.  You could always use sticky dots for added adhesion.  Build your scene as you like.

Just have fun with this step.

I used Dr. Ph Martin's ink to add splatters.

I inked the edges at this point using a smoothy and some Versafine Clair Ink in  Twilight.

Add interest with what you have.  I used some Spanish moss, sheet moss, small pebbles and mini pine cones.  Use your imagination and see what you have outside!

Here is another tin I used for another project.  These stand easily on their own.  Hope you enjoyed seeing these.  My inspiration came from a video Jo Rice did  this Winter.
