Use at least 1 recycled item on your project.
Not only are the girls at Scrap Africa offering a prize but i to will be offering these little goodies. Some book pages, napkins, bling, a stamp, doilies and some cute little pegs, all for you to be shipped anywhere in the world : )
Upcycling is really big right now. I have been doing it for awhile myself. I find myself salvaging the weirdest items with the hopes of incorporating them into my pages. I absolutely love the unique and interesting look i can achieve on my pages. I know a few people who would in absolute horror at adding anything that is not acid free near their photos but for me it is not an issue because i don't use the original photo. I mean in modern day society as well all our photos are backed up in more than one media and can be easily printed out again and again. In my case i print, store on computer, burn to a CD and sometimes a USB stick so i am well backed up.
So as i crated my page I decided to use some straws which i bought from Woolies, i also purchased them in a few other colours ;)
I had this awesome bag laying around after my daughters birthday.....
I then created this page and got a litte messy. I fear i went too far, lol, but had so much fun creating it. Another colour scheme i seldom use but i thought it would have to be a masculine type page.
So that is it from me for now. Take care xxx.
