Guest Designer @ Scrapping4funChallenges




Dear scrappers,

I was honored to be asked to guest design for Scrapping4funChallenges  blogspot.
The challenge is:
Challenge #86 - Recycling / Old Stash

Thus, I decided to get my accumulated old stash for St. Patrick's day and make some home decor:






I recycled some packaging to make the tag, and my stash from a few years of accumulation from Graphic 45, some Paper Source hand made paper I bought in Boston last year, some old burlap cardstock from previous projects, leftover metal slider for the hat, glitter ribbon so old... ,  glitter paste from BoBunny and stencils, some liquid metallic turquoise ink, 3 D gluedots, Dollar tree stickers, and glitter flowers with the 4 leaves clover. The wooden plate is from Target.

Here are some close-up pictures:















I will post an SnapGuide soon with details about how I made this mixed media homedecor piece. Please check back this post again to find the link here.
I hope you decide to join this challenge and enjoy the other very talented designers projects too.
I hope enjoy this project, 

Many blessings

Vicky Tovar

 I took this picture at night, thus my lightning is not great

 For the inside of the card, I decided to create some balloons with the reminder images of this kit.

 Here a better picture with more lights.

 Here you can see the layers,

 Here my daughter personalizing the card.

 Her final result.
