I had always been intimidated by decoupage and Mod Podge (don't ask me why) but recently I have learned to embrace them both.  I bought several ugly advertising tins for $1.50 each from Artscraps, which is a local store that sells salvaged items as art materials.  Now that I've decorated a couple, and I'm happy with the results, I can't wait to do more.  Loving how quick and easy it is to transform something with decoupage.

Mother's Day Bird Tin -- I packaged some lovely soaps in this tin for my mom for mother's day. 


Mid-Mod -- Found this image in an advertising brochure from House Industries, which sells digital fonts.  The brochure was in a huge barrel of bulk paper at Artscraps.


And here's a before shot of how the ugly tins looked, pre-Mod Podge:


Thanks for looking!

You did a great job on those tins!

(I wish we had something like Artscraps over here in Belgium. I would go there at least once a week.)

Thank you!  I love Artscraps -- it's fun to rummage through barrels of things to find something to use for a project.
