The story of the decorated lid...

LESSology-bottlecap-altered-box

So I found this old tin box in my "save-it-for-a-rainy-day" drawer [yeah, I have a box for the small stuff and a drawer for the bigger containers..*winks*]...it was beckoning to me to pretty it up [okay, it could totally be my imagination in the wee hours of the morning..haha]


I decided that I liked the discolouration of the metal so I just decorated the lid [okay, okay...I'll own up... I didn't have a piece of scrap paper nearby to cover it up... that didn't require getting up from my chair...]...



It was fun decorating the bottle cap with some beads and mica flakes...for LESSology Challenge #28: Open that bottle!


So, I'm thinking the juxtaposition of the old metal against the pretty lace/bloom could so totally work, right? *LOL*

P/s: Last week to play along with my guest Savannah's masking challenge. :)

Lazy or not, I totally love that you left the raw metal of the tin on the sides! Makes such a great shabby chic contrast with the gorgeous top! LOVE that flower you created with the bottle cap. The beads and mica flakes you added to it are soooo pretty!
