Autumn Recycling.

Recycling/Re-purposing  is the new challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow.
Please pop over to get all the details.
This is a theme that I realy enjoy. I always have bits a pieces around my desk to use in this way.
This project is a hanging, laid flat to get a better photo.
The base was a piece of mount board, with some random stamping. There is a little texture added  with Grunge Paste. This was  painted  with  Spectrum Noir Aquatints. Next up was the corrugated card, painted with cream acrylic paint. All other shading was Vintage Photo Distress ink.

On the left is a photo showing  the leaves I used. These were collected on walks and pressed in an old book.  The scraps of materials were left overs from other projects. The flowers were however,  newly out of a packet.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, I always appreciate the comments you leave.
