RECYCLED

As of very early yesterday I am back in Kazakhstan and today is the day for the next 
STAMPOTIQUE DESIGNERS challenge........this time we are challenged to.......RECYCLE.......something I love to do! Head over to the challenge site to join in the fun, there's a $30 gift voucher up for grabs for the winner!


 Here is my recycled book......it's not the piece I set out to make, that didn't work out how I wanted for the challenge.....you know how that goes I'm sure!......it will appear some other time:)

I recycled an old book cover......cut in half to give the two new book covers.......paper that was wrapped around something I bought (can't remember what!!) for the pages..........ribbons used to bind the pages together and to tie the book closed are from inside a new shirt, you know those really annoying ribbon loops that always end up showing when you wear it........and a fish tail left over from another project that gives SMUSHASHA a new look!

 I like the rough torn edges of the pages.......added a little colour..........

 ......fun to have the fish GORLIOIS wrapped around the spine of the book.......and GAWAN on the cover

STAMPOTIQUE stamps are available in the UK from THE STAMP ATTIC.
