White Wednesday, Altered Tins and Freebies!

White Wednesday! Well, yes, I know it's Thursday :)

I have been having a blast lately playing in a number of swaps for Halloween!

This beautiful altered tin from Jill
is perfect for my White Wednesday post!

This is an altoid tin that Jill papered inside and out
and mounted on a chipboard stand. So clever!
Inside she created a diptych with a magic and moonbeams theme.
It's just beautifully embellished, I LOVE it, thank you Jill!
And thank you Wendy for hosting this very fun swap!



And now...my tin for Jill!



The image and rusty bits are from Paper Whimsy, the watchface is vintage,
the wings were die cut from the foil from a wine bottle ;) and embossed.
Some vintage lace and a handmade rose from vintage music paper.
My new favorite technique for Halloween crafting
is to rip up pieces of netting and heat with a heat gun,
gently twisting and turning.
It curls in different places and lends a bit of quirky randomness to the project.

Inside is my little vignette...
a potion brewed from magic mushrooms, butterfly wings
and who knows what else,
served up by an evil queen...is it a treat or a trick?



Here's a couple of images for your Halloween crafting:

The altered tins are just amazing, I can't believe the details and embellishments.
The last image is very spooky, quite disturbing.

Following the same direction from your post, there is another good freebie place that many are using ... talking about the badges from http://domof.com that show the pagerank and alexa popularity for any domain of interest simply by inserting some small code.
