DT for Artistic Inspiration-Recycle

well monday is here again and that means challenge time over at Artistic Insprirations formally know as vintage elusions.

the theme this week is recycle so get out all thoese scraps of paper toilet roll tubes anything that youd normally throw away and get creative.

the sponsors this week are sassy studio designs who are offering the winner 4digis of there choice.

delicious doodles who is offering the winner 4 digis of there choice


robyns fetish who is offering the winner 5 digis of there choice 

so using snow cuddles by delicious doodles here is what i made....

not sure why the pic is sideways. but here is what i started off with and obviously my printed digi which i forgot to take pic of..

so using sweet wrappers that my boyfriend kindly made sure i had as he ate all the chocolate i decided to jazz up a gift bag for xmas..

here is the out come....

closer view of the bag.
i used a stencil to write and cut ot the 'merry christmas' sentiment.
i then glued sweet wrappers insode of the bag untill the sentiment was covered i then covered the inside of the bag with some card.

again dont know why this way..

i then used some of the wrappers to 'colour' the jacket the girl is wearing the rest i just used glitter glue.

i hope you like it xx
