Reuse, Reduce, Recycle.....

Good Morning,
Time for a reveal at Better Living through Scrapbooking...

2. Find fun or unusual item around your house and use them as elements on your page. Playing cards, clothing tags, junk mail, broken jewelry, old greeting cards or postcards, buttons and/or material from old clothing, advertising magnets, pins and keychains, and blooms and/or leaves from discarded plastic floral arrangements are just to name a few ideas.
3. Journal about why recycling is important to you.
4. Use traditional adhesives (Scotch tape, masking tape, duct tape, Elmer's Glue, staples) on your page in lieu of scrapbook adhesives.
5. Use glitter somewhere on your page.

Techniques used:
I used my Pumpkin Orange paint to distress the edges of the Eggplant cardstock, I am totally loving this effect! I also used Mod Podge to adhere one of the playing cards and the Sparkle Mod Podge to add a shimmer of glitter to the cocktail umbrella. For a more feminine touch, I gathered the Gauche Alchemy Acme fuchsia lace with staples and then attached it to the corrugated cardboard using staples.

This was another challenge that took me completely outside my box and I love that I created this important page for my "All About Me" book. Recycling is important to me as I love to scrapbook with those little treasures, as well as, reducing the amount of waste I am adding to my Mother Earth!
Please visit my Better Scrap family for more inspiration and fun ways to include some recycled items on your next project!
Blessings,
