This is a page made for the February " 123 Challenge ".
The 3 criteria for this challenge were.........
1. Colour = CREAM
2. Word = ABOUT
3. Technique/Theme/Idea = UPCYCLING......repurposing a material that is usually disposed of.
This was definitely a challenge for me. I think I am ( sadly ) a real " material " girl. I LOVE PRODUCT, the newer the better, so for me to use " old stuff ", stuff that is not really designed for scrapbooking really pushed me out of my comfort zone.
I also tried to be more minimalist; to use less. Collage is really my love, and I have an uncontrollable urge to add more and more to my page, ( you know, so I can use up all my product I have on hand ) Anyway I tried to keep it simple.
I have used a brown paper shopping bag, cut in half and used inside out; packaging from Prima Ribbons; muslin bandaging; crochet cotton; a tasselled cord that was on a dress tag; a paper serviette; some lace from an old costume; and some Chinese Joss paper ( you can't really see the gold of this on the embossed card in the photo ) plus some 'regular ' scrapbooking products.
