Paper Cowgirl Altered Tin Swap - What I Received

My original post about the Paper Cowgirl altered tin swap can be found here.  Today I'll show you the beautiful tin I received from Patty Cross, who was also the swap host. Our theme was time, with no restrictions on interpretation.
Patty used a Boticelli drawing of a young man, then covered the top in embossed clay with gears, watch faces and other interesting baubles.
 The inside has drawings by DaVinci on a fold out booklet over the Mona Lisa and waxed and layered on the opposite side.
 Patty included a packet of buttons, gears and other items for future creative efforts. As an additional bonus, everything arrived in a fun embellished envelope.

Thank you, Patty, for this wonderful creation that I will treasure, and for hosting this fun swap!


  1. What a fun swap and a great tin you received. After Christmas, I must start looking for fun swaps to spark my creativity.

  2. A wonderful treasure and I like the use of the wax layering on the inside.
