The top of the morning to you!
If all goes well in both the virtual and real world this post will appear bright and early and I will be at LB Crafts in Olney doing a Ranger Masterclass with Linda Elbourne! Blogger can be a bit moody and I have a stinking cold but I'm hoping for the best... So, Monday means a new theme at Simon Says Stamp & Show where it's Recycle or Upcycle. No, that's not an exercise programme but a call to be green, creative and thrifty!
Picket Fence Distress Stain to tone down the print and give the paper a nice white tint.
link on making art with your old loo rolls! I painted the star with Gesso, added Rock Candy Crackle paint and lined the inside with some fab blue Graphic 45 paper. I added a hint of colour with Stormy Sky Distress ink to the points.
Season's Silhouettes set in Ranger's Cobalt Archival ink and added some old parcel string to finish. I also put a cardboard piece into the bag bottom to support the structure. So there you go, a touch of Festive Junk! You could also make these bags from old gift paper, comics or brown paper and have a great time. They are quick, easy and quite a lot of fun!
here. You name it, they've done it! I'm sure you are all full of inventive ideas too, so come on, get peddling on your Upcycle! There's a generous $50 prize and Top Three Title on the go!
I'm all done for today and must be flitting off. Thanks for being here, I'd love to hear from you... See you all very soon, Sarah.
