Mini Album Altered Tin

Ebrush Design Team: Jan Hunter Week 6 Cycle 2

Latina Crafter 2015 LOGO
Latina Crafter is our sponsor for this month again!  I've really enjoyed using their products --

Well, it's been a couple of weeks since I shared this mini tag album with you -- and promised to share the storage container.  And here it is featuring a Latina Crafter stencil, the eBrush with the siphon adapter AND the Cut-n-Boss!

My paper started out as plain light gray.  I used the Cut-n-Boss and the Twill Herringbone embossing folder using the following sandwich from the bottom up, D, A, Embossing folder, A.

After the paper was embossed I got the eBrush out with the siphon adapter and a bottle of ink adding some ink to the well attachment.  Spray the whole page and let dry (It doesn't take long at all).  Rinse the well out and add a bit of water.  Now spray the water - the splotchier the better.  Let dry.


When the paper is dry, turn it wrong side up and trace the top and bottom of your tin.  Mark each. Cut and trim if needed.   Trace again and this time, cut just inside the traced line for the inside top and bottom of the tin.  Measure the width of the top and bottom sides.  (I used one full sheet 8.5 x 11 to cover the tin.  I had a second sheet as back-up if needed.)  Repeat again for the inside if you wish.  Decorate your top as desired.  I chose to use a stencil from Latina Crafter (Cumpleanos) to add a little interest.  The lettering is from a PC lettering set and the heart is an old punch from my stash (so old, the maker's identity has worn off).
Using Modge Podge adhere the pieces.  Let dry.  Tip:  Apply the inside pieces first.  Be sure to trim around the hinges and allow to dry thoroughly BEFORE applying a top coat to the paper both inside and out.

What project is next up in your craft room using Latina Crafter and CraftwellUSA?  I hope it's something fun and summery.... Make a memory in your crafting space this week!

Thanks for dropping by!
