The overdone tea tin

The overdone tea tin

Yes, these days I seem to be overdoing it a lot on my projects. I blame it on the new hot glue gun. It heats up super quick and I don't have to eat a can of spinach [a la Popeye] before I can squeeze the trigger to dispense the glue. *LOL*

Hence, this overdone tea tin. 

After an uneven spray of gold paint, my tea tin needed a bit of a cover-up job so I decided to wrap it in peekaboo lace. Then of course, I had an overzealous application of glue which resulted in the gold paint peeling off [I write this calmly now but I was freaking out!] so I needed a bigger cover-up. 

And you know how it went after that...the embellishments ganged up on me and beckoned me to use them. 

"Use me, I'm pretty!" 
"Hey, how about me? I'm good-looking too!"
"I'm blingtastic...stick me on!"

 Who can say "no" to talking embellishments right?! *winks*

It turned out quite pretty and overdone but I actually like it. :)

P/s: Hope you have a great week ahead friends! I will play catch-up on your blogs this week.:)

Not overdone, well done!!! Love how the lacy embellishments look on the gold sprayed tin. I have a lot of tea tins and now I'm going to get some gold spray paint to make embellished cookie tins which can be re-purposed after the cookies are eaten. Thank you for giving me another reason to embellish!

Haha, omgosh, you're making me laugh! Love your comments about the glue gun and talking embellishments! I think your embellished tea tin is fabulous! Love the glitz of the gold peeking through the fancy lace, and your cluster of embellies is just fun and quirky. Loving the brown bloom.... you know I'm all about the brown. And love the perched bird, too!
