Today was rather glum. I did a little spring cleaning but I've had such an awful cold I could not get much done without coughing my head off. Scary sight. The altered art thing is all about taking something everyday and making it into something delightful. Like those little mint cans with the hinged doors? You can attach decorative papers, rubber stamp and embellish them to make a miniature fairy garden. Most of the images are vintage ones and lots of butterfly wings, birds and cone hats. I even came across one artist who made a little purse out of a mint tin. Now you know how I love purses.....so I will be trying that one!
