How are you all on this damp Bank Holiday? You can always tell a Bank Holiday in the UK - it is the one day you can almost guarantee it to rain! Never mind, I don't think anything could dampen the spirits of those people in London today or the whole weekend. Next time I am going - for sure!
Well, yesterday and today whilst things have been busy in London, I have been stuck (such a hardship I know) in my Craft Room and today's showing is what I have made. Over at the Lovely Linda's we have been asked to use packaging and over at Simon Says Stamp and Show the Challenge is to show some texture so woopee! I can combine the both in this lickle project.
Here it is to begin with showing some of the items I was about to use in this project....
(Can anyone tell me what the difference is between "Recycle" and "Upcycle" please?)
Can you believe I had to drink the diet Coke in order to have a second can? Such sacrifices I have made for the sake of art! Here is the finished article....
The base is from a box in which some supplies came in.
Close up of the inked and embossed flowers and flourishes. All made from coke cans, die packaging, Prima and Anna Griffin packaging.
All the buttons are from a tin which a friend of mine rescued from her Aunt's house when she died.
The fluffy fibres were from the same place as the box. Every time you order from that company you have some fibres in the box which usually match the papers you have bought. The little clip came off the scarf I bought from my favourite shop only last week.
Even the lace was given to me when I went on a retreat in Cornwall some 3 years ago
More labels from my favourite shop and some splats from Distress Stains. The clip and Giggle tag are only two of the three bought embellishments on this layout.
These flowers were made using Cuttlebug dies and the sleeves you get when you buy take out coffee.
And the star of the layout - Sputnik, who started out being found in a skip in Cardiff herself. So all in all, a "Rubbish" layout!
Hope you like and please leave me a comment so I know you have been.
I also want to say Hi to my latest follower. Thank you for following me.
Edit - Woo Hoo! Teacher over at the Playground has told me to link this to the Snippets Challenge because it is technically Snippets albeit from the Recycle Bin!! Why don't you use up your Snippets and join us in the Playground, though most of us are on the Carousel in this yukky weather as at least there is a roof on there for us to shelter under!
