More recycling!


Viv's OH is really suffering to provide us with 'free' metal for our art work,the background and the large leaves are cut from a beer can and the clock is Ten Second Studio metal, I used alcohol inks and black acrylic paint to distress the background and alcohol inks on the leaves, inside the book are pocket pages for tags etc. I'm really trying to get some mileage out of the owl embossing folder.
