Over at the Paper Whimsy Forum, Rande posted a Let's Go Green Challenge. We were suppose to use at least 5 recycled items. I wasn't going to play at first as I am so behind on everything at the moment, but I couldn't resist and there is a long timeline to complete the project.
For the background of my collage I used torn cardboard from an old box and painted it. Gathered twigs and dead leaves from my backyard. Found rusty bottle caps, screen, nails and whatever that thing is tied to the twig at the bottom of the collage, LOL... I also used painted paper towels, scraps of paper and napkins, snippets of material, old screen that my husband just replaced from our patio door, since Colby decided to dash through it the other day to get to his horse buddy next door and a junk piece of wood that I found in Tom's workshop. The new thing I used was of course one of Paper Whimsy's gorgeous images.
I am so glad I decided to play this challenge, is was fun collecting and placing items that would probably made it to the garbage bin eventually.
