LIFE BY THE SEA....Altered Altoid Tin to The Next Level

So as everyone knows I recently attended the Gecko Galz retreat and one of the Challenges they had this year was to take an Altoid Tin and re-purpose it. So I  was inspired by using a collection of products from Canvas corp and did this little Beach Shrine..


Altoid Tin
Wooden Shrine from Hobby Lobby
Nautical Print Paper by Canvas Corp
Cheese Cloth
Distress Ink in Vintage photo
Sea Shells from Hobby Lobby
Two Sentiments from 7 Gypsies  Paper
Glimmer Mist  in Verdigris & Bronze

Alcohol Ink in Mermaid
Images from Gecko Galz

Mini Drawer pull by Spare Parts
Metal decorations from my stash
pearls from old necklace
E-6000 Adhesive
Scotch liquid adhesive


  1. A fabulous project, I can almost smell the sea air. The tin is beautifully embellished and the mermaid is gorgeous. I love how you've decorated the stand with natural elements and created a whole wonderful backdrop for the tin.
