upcyle for earth day for Frilly and Funkie DT
well it is the Funkie dt teams turn over at Frilly and Funkie to share their inspiration for the new theme chosen by the lovely and talented Linda. Make sure you pop across and see the other fab DT make s...you could be the next chosen winner or randomly selected for $25 to spend at Linda lovely online store ...The Funkie Junkie Boutique. So the Theme is upcycle for earth day..so here is my make from an upcycled box:
So here is how my upcycled project started life..
I started by crackling the box using paint and crackle medium and then onto the fun part.. I sued various stamps from the Artistic Outpost set Generation Redux , a real favourite and I love that there are small stamps great for creating background elements. I used antique linen distress paint and Frayed burlap and vintage photo distress ink to create lots of stamped layers. I then did some stamping with the yummy new antique bronze distress paint too.
I also used the music script from Artistic Outpost ephemera backgrounds. I tried to create layers of soft stamping that add to the overall background but don't all leap out.. The flowers are made using the same method as I used for my Saturday stepXstep ..details here. ( using ranger foil, embossing folders, alcohol ink, idea-ology washers and long fastners). I then added these to the box and added idea-ology leaves and some twirls of rusty wire
I used an idea-ology piece for the centre (I changed the colour using treasure gold) and added a chit chat sticker.
Inside I shredded some old book pages, ok, I am behind the times I cut them into strips with my scissors!! I then made a mini canvas using some rusty wire, chit chat sticker and one of the beautiful rusty hearts that Linda has in her boutique...I love these , so this would be for a special friend!
Hope that you will find time to hop here and play along , there are so lovely makes already and you never know you may be a winner!
