Live for Today, Recycled Tin

Hello Everyone, 

I was actually able to spend a bit of crafty time at my desk this week! I really didn't have much in mind I just wanted to get my hands messy. So I started playing with my bits f resin, which is just a mix of pieces I have collected or bits I have made using molds. As you can imagine my desk was very quickly a hot mess!

But after a while I came up with a focal point, I picked a color combo  & Base based on the Mood board over at the Mixed Media Place. 

As you can see this challenge has lots of lovely blues mixed with a touch of Fire and there is a heart in the rock formation. So boom perfect inspiration, Thanks Mixed Media Place :)

Anyhow this little recycled tin came together rather quickly with a mix of Art Alchemy Paint &Wax. So with out further ado here is this weeks stress relief project....

For this challenge I decided to alter a  small picture frame that I found at my local Dollar General.
