Ann - this is cool! I have a bunch of these I need to alter! Thank you so much for your kind comments on my beaded heart page, I am glad that's done and I can get back to some mixed media. :) Marva

This is so great. I just bought a dozen cinnamon altoid tins to save the tins when the altoids are gone, because I want to try altering one. Did your tin front have a 3D embossed shape on it? Just wondering how to get rid of that, layer and layer the gesso or use stencil paste? Hammer flat? I wish I knew! :-))
