recycled art..........




On Fabric atcs 1 to 1, the yahoo group, we are having a recycled postcard challenge.....I like doing this kind of thing and I do a lot of it anyway. I have been in the "use what I have" mode for a long time . I just threw a lot of stuff down on a leftover piece of fabric paper and put a piece of netting over the top and sewed it down. I really love the color in this piece...The atc is from another sample card of home dec braid and trim...I like the little metal circles...This may be my big accomplishment for the day...I am still in my pajamas and I don't foresee getting dressed and no one will know anyway!

Love the new cards!!
Sometimes I feel like staying in my PJs all day, but I think the neighbours might wonder about me walking the dog in them!! So once I've got dressed for that, you can't really recapture the moment :)

both are terrific pieces, but I especially love the whole concept/execution of the first one!

Oh so cute! I love them both. I have been busy working on my portrait class so I hope to get in on the swap if possible. Thanks for sharing! Jenna Louise
