Found Objects- Hold Me Close



Over at Gingersnap Creations today there is a challenge to use found objects. I choose to use a little fuse box tin I had. I painted the tin to look old and rusty added the image and text, covered it with a thin sheet of mica and some brads to hold it in place. The inside has a Madonna image and more text and a vintage cross a dear friend gave me. The beaded chain is from a Rosary. Go check out all the Found Objects today, you never know what you'll find!
