Hi everyone! Since it's earth month, I've got reduce + reuse + recycle on the brain. I'm challenging you to REDUCE the amount of time you spend on a page by REUSING the scraps and embellishments already on your desk and RECYCLING ideas from your past projects. Lift yourself. Re-do a technique that you loved.Borrow leftovers from the last page you finished. If it worked before, it will work again - and it will save you decision making time in the process!!
For this page, I pulled in several ideas that I've used before. I misted a series of circles along both edges of my page, and I matted my photo on patterned paper and tucked the mat under the strips of pp framing my page. I also added a little funky zigzag stitching along the side, and mixed my new favorite green Addy letter stickers with a blockier font for my title. I loved these techniques the first time I tried them, and I love them on this page! The papers and embellishments were all in my "to be put away" pile (and let's not talk about how big this pile is - at least i've made it a little smaller by using some of it!) And since I didn't spend a lot of time making decisions, I had this page done in under 45 minutes.
Supplies: Patterned paper - Countryside Betsy, Countryside Wildflower, State Fair Midway, October Afternoon & Crate Paper ; stamps - Time Flies ; veneer - butterflies and buttons ; mist - Mister Huey's Pickle ; letter stickers - Addy Alphabet - green ; ink - Jenni Bowlin Studio Seedpacket; other - Tiny Attacher, brads, circle punch
I can't wait to see how you reduce + reuse + recycle!
