Art-i Cakes inspired altered altoids tin charm for a swap at MAS 2/2

In a precedent post I show the steampunk altoids tin charm I made, here is the shabby one, and it's a big one lol, I really like volume and chunky aspects after all ;p

I made a beads charm for the dangles

Bling accent on the back

I tried to give a texture to the orange part with gesso, acrylic paint and the gunheater

Art-i Cakes inspired altered altoids tin charm for a swap at MAS 1/2

I made this for a swap on Mini Album Scraps, we have two choices: to altere a regular altoids tin or to make a charm with a tiny one inspired by the Art-i Cakes charms. So I choose the second option and signed for two spots =) The themes were steampunk, vintage or shabby. So here is the steampunk one I made, I made a shabby charm too.

First I have to buy some altoids smalls tins somewhere because you can't find this in Japan, so I bought a lot of 12 boxes at a seller who import things from the US. I will use the other boxes for future projects.

And here are the pictures, it gave me so trouble but I think it look great for a first attempt at steampunk design:

Won auctions at a great price!!/Enchères gagnées à un bon prix!!

Just received the design papers, flowers, pins and the settings and holders I won on Yahoo Auctions Japan, the whole lot around 4500 yens ($45), I'm pretty happy with this because design paper from US is so hard to find in Japan and expensive!!

So there is 6x6 and 8x8 pads from Prima, Bo Bunny, Graphic45 (wanted the Secret Garden so much!) and the Mariposa is really beautiful. And the seller added some die cuts as a gift!
Juste reçu les papiers, fleurs, aiguilles et les apprêts gagnés sur Yahoo Auctions Japan, le tout m'est revenu à 40 euros, je suis plutôt contente car les papiers américains sont si chers et durs à trouver au Japon!!

Il y a donc des blocs en 6x6 et 8x8 de Prima, Bo Bunny et Graphic 45 (je voulais tellement Secret Garden!) ainsi que le magnifique Mariposa de DCVW, et le vendeur m'a ajouté quelques die cuts en cadeau!

Shabby ATCs for a Swap/ ATC shabby pour un swap

I made a set of two ATCs for a swap at MiniAlbumScraps, unfortunely I have no pictures of my ATCs because my memory card didn't work, but you can see them in the video of Sugargrovecrafts who hosted the swap. It's the set at the very end, also enjoy the beautiful work of the other participants ^^

J'ai fait deux ATC pour un swap auquel je participe sur le site américain MiniAlbumScraps, malheureusement je n'ai pas pris de photos en raison de problèmes avec ma carte mémoire mais vous pouvez tout de même les voir dans la vidéo ci-dessous, il s'agit du dernier set présenté. C'est également une occasion d'apprécier le travail des autres participantes ^^

I am working now on two other sets of ATC and a set of art-i-cakes inspired altoids tin charms, I'm so excited about this, hope to show them soon!
Actuellement je suis sur deux autres sets d'ATC et un set de mini boites en métal dans le but de les modifier pour les transformer en porte-clés inspirés de la ligne Art-i-cakes. Je suis si excitée, j'espère vous les montrer bientôt !
