So I was browsing Blogger the other day (when I should really have been doing other things) and came across the reminder for the challenge at Unstampabelles. I used to be rather scared of playing along there, but since I've gotten into mixed media and altered art more, not using stamps has become a little easier. So I figured I'd take a break from all the "must do"s and sit down to do a "want to" instead.
The theme is "creative upcycling", so I decided I'd do another altered coaster for my little book. If you missed them, the other ones I made for this month's Rhedd's Creative Spirit challenge are here.
The twist for this month's Unstampabelles challenge was to use something I've had in my craft room for a year or more. in this case that would be the photobooth picture, the papers, the Hessian and the button! And I guess the staples too! (and the texture paste, and the Gesso, and... lol!)
But I did use some newer items too! Like the Distress Crayons I used for the colour, and the collage medium I used to give it all a uniform look (I am very much in love with both of these products!)
In other news, the appointment for the pain in my hands that they cancelled last month has been rescheduled for tomorrow (only been waiting since October!), so hopefully that will shed some light on things.
Hope you all have a most fantabulous day!
