Altered Altoid tin tutorial
Hmmm...twenty steps? Not so short.
Betsy Skagen (Use your noggin and realize it rhymes with toboggan), Artist, writer, editor and designer
Last year I took a plunge. After spending decades as a professional writer, graphic designer and business owner, I took a deep breath and formalized my long-term love affair with paper crafting and altered arts by forming Paper Calliope.
Some of my loves include vintage circus, mid-century graphics and plenty of whimsical kitsch. I am passionate about writing from the heart to illuminate and overcome the anxieties of life, helping kids with special needs and lots of belly laughs. Oh yeah, i also despise the Oxford comma.
I have been named to the international design teams of the ColourArte, Robin's Nest, Whisker Graphics and Altered Pages. Please drop by my blog at www.PaperCalliope.com.
