Recycling Week @the LLC Inspiration Blog

Hi there,
This week we had recycling as a theme over at the Live & Love Crafts’s Inspiration Blog. For me quite a challenging theme. I do consider myself environmental friendly,  but when it comes to recycling & crafting…well I find that a bit difficult. There are simply too many NEW beautiful products I like to use.

As Tina and Beckyhad already used corrugated cardboard in their recycling projects, and that was my only idea I was a bit stumped. I was standing in the kitchen, looking around what I could possibly use when hubby came around. I asked him and he pointed to the nectarines standing on the kitchen counter.Yeah so there they were in all their glory in a plastic tray with an ugly red plastic ribbon…Great…NOT!!! …but wait…what about the net???
So this is what I used for:
I shaped it like a flower; it worked out great as the net was elastic, and added some Maya Road Tulle Trim behind it, a few roses, some lace and Pearl String. If you’re wondering what that white stuff that looks a bit like frost in the net is, it’s Snow-Tex. 🙂
Last week the inspirational theme was “Christmas with Summer papers”. As I already then had had the FabScraps Christmas papers delivered, I was very tempted to use them instead…but that would have been cheating, so I did stick with the theme. This week I finally got to have a play with them though. 🙂 This is the beautiful sheet “Little Children“.Here’s a close up of some of the details:
 In the large picture, you can better see the effect of the Snow-Tex on paper, and I also used one of the new Christmas charms, Santa’s Sled. To decorate I used some red berries from my stash, the Jute Fabric and Baker’s Twine. The sentiment is from LOTV and also for this one, I used the fruit net, together with some Jute Fabric and Cheese Cloth.
Thanks for stopping by!
