Hello! Welcome back to another La-La Land Crafts Weekly Wednesday Challenge! This one is near and dear to my heart, because I am the hostess this week ;D My challenge to you this go round is to "Upcycle It"! Take an ordinary item you would normally toss in the trash and turn it into something fabulous to use on your card creation. It could be an old business card, a colorful flier, or even an oddball earring without a mate. The possibilities are endless!
I tried to get creative with my card...let's see how I did. Can you spot my upcycled items? First of all, I received a wonderful pad of BG paper from a friend. I know what you're thinking. What's the big deal, so you used some patterned paper, so what? Nope, no patterned paper, instead, I used the cover of the pad. I cut the strips off and used those on my background. Then I took the remaining piece of the cover, flipped it over and stamped my image on it, which I then colored with Copics. Would I recommend using the back of the cover on the BG paper pad for stamping and coloring? Heck no!! It was way different than the Neenah Classic Solar White I normally use. It was a bit toothy and very strange to blend on. I'd come near recommending a brown grocery bag over this...LOL! But, hey...it's supposed to be a challenge so why not?! The other items I upcycled were the two tags on the side. Do you recognize those? They are the sample tags attached to each package of Tim Holtz Grungeboard. They are just too cool to toss ;D
The image I used this week is Fairy Lala and she is available in the shop through Tuesday at 20% off. Go now and snag her at this incredible price! She's a cutie ;D
Everyone is welcome to join the fun, but if you use a La-La Land Crafts image, then you could be eligible to win a $10.00 credit to be used in the La-La Land Crafts Shop. If your creation is in the top 3, then you could win a Top 3 badge to proudly display on your blog!
