Last Saturday Journal Challenge

 Morning and the last Saturday of the month means its's a Smash Your Stash journal day with Vicki at Stamped Smiles hope you will pop over and check out her journal page.

The theme this month is recycled items/thrifted items to upcycle/pieces of magazine /gift wrap.

I used my Pink Pink journal and found a page that was used for mop ups.I added a piece of coruggated card coloured with  aqau marker,the roses are from a piece of gift wrap and the Japanese newspaper was from errrrr oops no idea had it for years lol hope it's the right way up!

I found an oddment of lace and made a flower -added a recycled Bee from a birthday card and glued them both onto a dried tea bag.The TH die-cut leaf was a left over and I found a feather on the floor from the Lovebird so slipped that in too,the little tag was Graphic 45 and cut a piece from an old dictionary page.

This is such a pretty journal page Carol and you have crammed so much stuff into. I have been trying to think what part was my favourite, it's so hard to make up my mind. The bee really pops right off the page and I adore bumble bees but I think it has to be the Japanese newspaper, there is just something about it. Great project.

Just been to Vickie's page, which blew me away and now I'm here taking in your fantastic page. What a great use of all those little finds. You have combined them into a beautiful piece of art. We love seeing you art at River of Creativity where you seem to "get" us. All day now I am going to have Paper Roses going round in my head! x
