Nov cc ch 2: Recycle It!! :)

Post by vickstar on Tue Nov 09, 2010 11:56 pm

My challenge to you all this month is all about recycling!! Smile This may sound scary, but i am sure as soon as you get started, you will really enjoy it!! Smile

So what do you have to do? I'm not going to make this too tough, i am just going to challenge you to create a layout from recycled products from in and around your home! Your layout does not need to be made entirely from recycled products, but if you can, go for it!! Smile

Here is my example layout, made entirely from recycled products! Smile


This layout started as a pizza box, which i distressed, then rubbed over with a wet tea bag for a bit of colour. I then used bubblewrap, which came with one of the swaps last month, and stamped with some pink ink to give a bit more colour to the background, and then used the bottom of a apple sauce jar to stamp the circles with black ink over top. The crazy coloured pictures i cut off of Jorja's showbag, the denim is the bottom of Matt's old jeans, the book page and doiley are from the op shop, and i have dyed the doiley in beetroot juice (it smelled for a day, but is fine now!)!! Smile The fabric button is off a pillow case, also from the op shop. The op shop products were all already in my stash! Smile The photo mat is the clear lid from a packet of cookies from Coles, the purple squiggly pattern is the sticker off my Herbal Essence shampoo bottle, and the title is cut from a cereal box!! Phew, thats all!! lol!! Was soo much fun putting this together and thinking outside my scrap cupboard!! Smile

Hope you all have fun with this!! Smile

The winner of this challenge will receive a $25 store voucher from Paper Craft Magic!


All entries need to loaded into the correct temporary gallery folder by midnight Sunday 21st Nov! Smile

Wow Vicki! Your layout looks incredible. It's amazing that you used no actual scrapbooking supplies for this. Great challenge and you've shown us it can be done AND look stunning!! Smile

LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS CHALLENGE TO BITS!!!

Your layout looks awesome Vicki... you are such a clever bunny!

I can't wait to have a play with this one and I look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with...

I'm into recycling, upcycling and recycled art in a big way and one of my fave places to visit is a place called Reverse Garbage (in Brissy)... I can spend hours there pawing over all the cool recycled goodies they have on offer - many from manufacturing plants and the like as well as other sources... They also have a funky gift shop / art gallery featuring amazing creations by local artists... They also run some way cool recycled art workshops for the kidlets over the school hols which DD loves to attend.

Here is mine.
Not all recycled products but close.
Not the best photo due to lack of sun : (
Its actually much more blingy IRL.

Thanks for the awesome challenge Vicki
