Hi Everyone. Whew ! Being new to blogging I decided to make a tag for The Sunday Stampers. Don't have a clue what happened, but I have made the largest tag ever !!! Or not !!!!
Whilst doing the breakfast dishes I had an idea to make something with one of my recycling items. (A cereal box ) And here it is. ............well second picture down.
I did get carried away and had a really fabulous time, lots and lots of glue and ink. I scrunched up old book pages, which I inked with various distress inks, namely vintage photo and broken china. I then glued the pages on using Ranger glue 'n' seal. I used my Bigshot to die cut the word journey, alphabet letters and vintage car. Using archival inks I stamped the air balloon and words , ( TH - Stampers Anonymous, Remnants and Words for Thought) and small vintage car ( WV- Studio 490).
I had planned to add transport, sail , drive and fly to the front of the box, however, with no room to spare I decided to add them to the back instead, along with another creative verse. I also used Tim's flicking techniques, just to add a bit of age/grunge.
I am really pleased with outcome, though may take some new photographs as these ones dont do it justice.
Hope you like it too. :)
I plan to submit my Altered Cereal Box to the following challenges:
Sunday Stampers - Transport
Simon Says Stamp: Favourite Tool - I love my BigShot
Frilly and Funkie - I'll Take Your Word For It.
Divas by Design - Anything goes
Craft Us Crazy- Altered Items
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
The Recycle, Re-Purpose & Re-Invent challenge has a bonus question. My reply is that I have been hoarding silver foil trays from apple pies etc and glass bottles, which I plan to alter soon.
Thank You for visiting.
Happy Crafting.......................Hugs Annie x
