Recycle it BABY! (DT TIOT)


Good Day,

May the sunshine upon you and your boots never get holes in them. This is my Design Team Piece for the current Try it on Tuesday challenge which is recycling. This is a book which I have covered using ceral packet cardboard.
I wanted something that looked faded, old and a bit battered. I went back to basics and used distress inks and water, I really like this look. The string is reused from a gift.

The wonderful Crafty Emblies are sponsoring us this month, do have a look at their wonderful website.
