'Upcycling'


Apparently 'upcycling' is making something nice out of the not so nice so I think I've done it by making a nice gift bag out of a plain lunch bag, I've used the Tim Holtz 'Tattered Flower Garland' die again, I really like the flowers it cuts out, and i've used distress inks on the petals to give them shading. Tomorrow brings another workshop, one I'm sharing with Barry, we're doing Easter cards etc so something to look forward to.
