Welcome

Welcome! Artfully Musing is a blog dedicated to sharing art and the techniques and products used. I'll be showcasing collage, altered and mixed media art as well as miniature. I hope you'll check back often and are inspired. Thanks for visiting! Laura

NOTICE: AlphaStamps has moved to a new website. Unfortunately, I was not aware the product links in my blog posts would not forward to the products on the new website. This has affected both the links in the posts and my Collage Sheet & Digital Image Set Catalogs. I ask for your patience while I work to fix the links. I’ll be fixing the newest posts first working back in time. Lastly, I’ll fix the catalogs. In the meantime, if you encounter broken links and need to finding something you can either use the name of the product to search the new AlphaStamps.net site or you can email me using the “Email Me” button at the top of the left column of the blog and I will do what I can to help.

REMNANTS OF THE PAST ALTERED ALTOIDS TINS - PLUS VIDEO TUTORIAL OF SIX DIFFERENT ALTERED TINS - NEW COLLAGE SHEETS

I’ve been altering tins for a long time and I just finished a new one so I thought it would be a good opportunity to do a video tutorial that includes the new project as well as some of my older Altoids tin related projects.

The Remnants of the Past project is vintage themed and involves hinging two tins together (minus the lids), using one tin for a shadow box and the other for an accordion folded book.
On the outside of the tins, I used a paper tearing technique to frame the vintage ephemera images then accented the torn area with paper roses.
Inside on the left is the book.  The last page is attached to the tin and when folded, tieing the lace holds the book in place. 
The papers I used are from the Architecture  2  8x8 Paper Pack.
All of the images in the project are from my NEW Remnants of the Past Collage Sheets.

These two sheets are packed with vintage ephemeral all sized to work with smaller projects like altered tins and ATCs.

PROJECTS I’LL BE COVERING IN THE VIDEO TUTORIAL
In the video tutorial, I’ll be covering all of the projects pictured below.  Some use two tin bases, some use one, and one uses the leftover lids.  Included are a variety of themes and techniques.  Below the video are the links to the supply list for each project (carried by AlphaStamps) and links to the original project post where applicable.

Lovely project! What a great idea to put two tin bottoms together. I know I'll be using this for something in the future. Thanks so much for sharing all of you creativity.
