Abstract Leaves & Numbers ~ Pringles cans recycled

Hi,

It’s still January and I’m here again? That must be good, right?

Anyway, let me introduce myself: “Hello, my name is Denise and I am a hoarder.”

Yep, that’s it. I can’t throw away some things because when I look at then I always see potential, and it pains me to just contribute to add more unnecessary rubbish to this planet and then having to buy new stuff. Well, not me. I save a bunch of “rubbish” so then I can re-use it, and let’s be honest that is just the perfect excuse to do some crafting, right?

So here are some pringles cans recycled. Now they are storage tubes 😀

 

For this one I use some patterned paper, the ‘mini abstract leaves’ stencil (by The Crafters Workshop) with handmade texture paste mixed with ‘clear gloss texture paste’ (by Tim Holtz) applied on tissue paper and then glued with a medium mate to seal the all thing. I also used ‘vintage photo’ distress paint (by Tim Holtz) on the top and bottom rings.

For this one, again, I used some patterned paper, the ‘numbers2stamp’ stamp set (by TSOL), ‘black soot’ distress ink to smudge here and there, black archival ink, ‘ripe persimmon’ distress paint (by Tim Holtz) for the top and bottom rings.

I had to use the pattered paper her to hide the mess underneath, let’s leave it at that… So after the original attempt I ended up with a plain, easy and quick project, but easy does it for me.

I’m about to start an art journal… Wish me luck!

In Love & Gratitude,

Denise

Book Of Shadows ~ Covers

Oppsy, I can’t believe that I’m sharing this project with you, but I am.

As you know by now, I do not blog in a professional way, meaning that I don’t earn any money here. For that reason, I only share the projects that I make for myself, so I’m never worried in creating content for the sake of selling anything to anyone or just to keep this space active, it will always be as active as I can. With that said, here is the project I’m working on now. It could be called “My Book Of Magick”, maybe I’ll save that title for another project.

Yes, I’m talking about magick with a K. We are all alchemists, whether we know it or not. But I’m not going to expand on my spiritual beliefs in this space 😉 instead, I’m just sharing with you the covers I’ve made for this project.

By the way, the stack of books was totally stolen from Vicky. I absolutely love her artwork.

Because Ryn allows up tp three projects per month on her Customer Creation Challenge I am submitting this one in addition to the last two already submitted.
