Art class was always my favorite subject in school. I have fond memories of those metal tins that held the little blocks of watercolor paints. I was thrilled when I found a vintage paint tin at an estate sale. I created an altered art piece using the tin as the base and adding layers of thrifted meaningful memorabilia.
