Recycled Ballet Dancer Make Up Bag
Over on Happy Daze the challenge for this month is to recycle. How about recycling some of your Christmas cards and decorations now you have taken them down? Or maybe some of that left over pretty packaging? Today's recycling was a Tesco make up bag that had contained nail care bits and pieces and was pink and covered in white butterflies. I covered it in Tim Holtz Composer tissue wrap so that you can still see the white butterflies peeking through. I then stamped the little girl at her ballet class from the Artistic Outpost set onto tissue paper and coloured her with Distress Inks, and added some of the text from the same set, all applied with Matte Gel Medium. I finished it off with some pleated ribbon trim, some lace flowers, and a friendly plastic flower from a homemade mould, made from a piece of broken jewellery.
I am entering this into the Artistic Outpost referral programme. If you are in the US you can get their amazing array of stamps direct from them, but if you are in the UK you can get them from Happy Daze, along with lots of other unusual crafty and altered art goodies.
I hope you will join in this month's challenge, which was chosen by me!! I love to recycle; it is so rewarding.
