Recycle and save.

Hi everyone Yvonne here to share another inspirational post with you all.
One of my favourite recycling products is old packaging 
and  together with scraps I store,  just in case they may be useful,
 this is another   '' Make it 3D ''    project  I have made for Halloween.

Strip back some of the surface card and give the whole piece a coat of white gesso or acrylic paint.
Then simply tear off pieces until you get the shape you would liker to use

  Some pieces from  my bits box.

Start places them to get an idea  of where you want them before sticking down.

Adding some stencils {Tim Holtz]  with Modelling paste for added texture.

Paint it all over with white acrylic.

Now for the  inky addition using Spray paints.
Dylusions Calypso Teal
Prima Summer Sky
and a home made black watercolour spray

Its finally ready to add the  Halloween images. The die cut cat  [Tim Holtz]was also recycled packaging painted glossy black.
All the stamps were from Stampers Anonymous or Chocolate Baroque.

There is still time for you to enter our current challenge.....
Make it 3D.
which ends on the 4th November.
We hope you will join us.
