Fabulous Friday Challenge, Reuse or Repurpose

Over at Frosted Designs this week we have a excellent new challenge. Recycle, Reuse, Repurpose...Huh I hear you say, well it's easy, I have used all of my sons photos that we normally would throw away, but I had other ideas for them, I cut a small section out of each photo that was no good, it might have been out of focus or someone closed their eyes. I even cut up an old photo and made my own embellishments out of it, I sanded around the edges and then put some Rub and Buff over the scratched area and then wiped away, I was really happy with the way they turned out, Perfect!!! I then put rub ons on and glossyed over the top, except for the large photo and the embellishments I painted Mod Podge over all the little photo, which are all mounted on a mini canvas...  This came from someone I seen just sifting through her photos once and just tossing the photos away, and I thought No they are memories to, what could be done with them. I am also going to do the girls ones as well.

Come over to Frosted Designs and have a look at what the other DT members have made, I was stunned at the things that we just throw away and look at what can be done with them.

Enjoy x
