from trash to treasure!

How fun is it to create new things from old!I created this fun layout for simply scrapping.I always like to see the how toos,so heres a little play by play for yall to see the magical process!Heres the goodies I used:
I created a black background with tissue paper which i accordion folded:
I Painted on the packaging,cut circles,folded them in half to create this flower:
I used the surrounding cutouts rather than the sticker itself for these parenthesis:

I stenciled,cutout from the cardboard,painted,and beaded this "&" symbol in my title:and also i used an old book page as one layer,found and cut the frame around the title,and found the white paper by using a crate paper pad cover paper,...and thats whats recycled/re purposed! I hope yall like it and find the time to make some trash to greatness scrappy art!I am off to scrap yet another "trashy" layout for our Scrap your Crap / Gutter Girlz swap layout....posting on the 15th(so be sure to peek back in for more trashy greatness!
