This week's challenge at Lasting Memories is right up my alley, "Reduse, Reuse, Recycle". I LOVE to reuse my scraps, turn packaging into something scrap-worthy, and dig through the recycle bin for crafty surprises. As an added bonus, the DT was able to use images from Heart Song Designs, they're our sponsor this week!
I chose a lovely Cherry Blossom image, and printed it, along with my title, right on my pattern paper. I colored just the blossoms with watercolor pencils for a splash of color. Did you find my reclycled item? It's the journaling tag, it's actually the packaging from a set of Karen Foster License Plates. Such a nic big tag with a great grommet- I couldn't stand to put it in the trash, so it's been living in my "recycled scraps" bin for a few years now! I used acrylic paint to dress it up, and then wrote my journaling on there once it was dry.
