Alrighty all. I made this altered tin for the fantastic loves2experiment in the Wicked Vices Altered Tin Swap. One of her vices was procrastination, and i can totally relate to that.

Loves2experiment put into words what i was trying to express:
I love the nonchalant and calm demeanor on the cover...even as deadlines are looming Tongue

The top is made from polymerclay and painted with acrylic paint.

Inside are two little items.

A tiny canvas with the quote "The sooner i fall behind, the more time i have to catch up." All around the edge.

And a little pollyclay bird. "The little black bird is what I imagine procrastination as...a black bird that flys around my head making me lose my motivation"
