Creative Paperclay® Altoid Shrine!

I love altering things... especially small tins.  Molding with Creative Paperclay® gives endless options when it comes to what ever you want to include in a shrine. If you can't find something your want to include MAKE IT!  Frozen Charlottes are my favorite object to use when altering.  Here I have taken one of the dolls and used it in an ALTOIDS  TIN!
Using Creative Paperclay® I molded Frozen Charlottes in an Articus mold.  

Once the she was dry I sanded her down and painted her with Terri Sproul Mixers Citrine & Crystal Lacquer. Attached a small heart made with Creative Paperclay® with the lacquer. 
I gathered anything I thought I might like to use... I didn't use half of it. The background papers are from my stash.  The images are from Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe
The tag on the front of the the tin has a light coating of lacquer.

 The bird is Creative Paperclay™ molded from a paper casting mold I found art my local thrift store.  I painted it with Terri Sproul Mixers Tanzanite Pearl & Crystal Lacquer.

Add a few oddities and you have your own little curiosity shoppe!!

And to think I have been giving my sister the used tins for some project she says she's going to do1 I think I may have to keep a few to do this. This really is so wonderful. Simply Lovely!
