This is the first of several posts today for the week long challenge at Catch The Bug. This is the project that has been taking most of my time. I wanted to get it completed before I blogged any of these.
I have repurposed a cigarello tin that my Mum found when clearing out her house in preparation for moving. She was going to throw it out but I told her that I had a use for it. I now need to show her why I kept it!
I would like to enter:

I painted the tin with white gesso. I then used Finnabair Rust Effect Paste set to add colour. On top of that I have used some Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Flakes. The photo album is made from beige cardstock. The cover for the album is heavier weight metallic cardstock. I used the same Bugaboo Stamps image for the outside of the tin and the front cover of the photo album. I coloured some wooden snowflakes with the Finnabair Rust Effect Paste for the outside of the tin. The snowflakes on the photo album have been die-cut from blue cardstock using a die from Sissix. Matting of the image is gold metallic paper. The photo album fits neatly in the tin - I sat it at an angle on top of the tin for photographing.
