A recycled zodiac inspired journal page ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your weekend was good and your week has started well. Debs at Lylac Sparkles is hosting a monthly mixed media challenge about the signs of the Zodiac. There are lots of already documented mixed media techniques I want to try and I wanted to have a play session with some ideas of my own and I’ve some ideas of my own that I wanted to try out too. There are quite a few recycling challenges at the moment and pairing those with the Zodiac challenge piqued my interest. Here is the finished journal page …
An A4'ish page
The first attempt that I didn't like
A final look at the finished page.
Created for me and especially for these Challenges:
Our Creative Corner Challenge Junk In Our Trunk: I'm recycling card
Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge: Inspired by Animals
* whilst moving and re-organising my craft room I came across a bound folder I created years ago. It’s about 20cm x 25cm. It was created with Bazzill card, We Are Memory Keepers DP’s and Craftwork Cards chipboard. I knew I wouldn’t use it for what I originally created it for so I decided to take it apart and recycle all of it which means it is perfect to enter into the recycling challenges at PaperArtsy and Our Creative Corner along with some other challenges – yippee!!!
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this week ttfn Karen x
