I'm into recycling. (Probably cuz I have a guilty conscience about all the crafting goodies I buy!) But also cuz we're really into it here in Germany. And it IS a good thing!
So, I like the Lessology blog. Do you know them? If you like recycling (or should I say upcycling) and crafting you should.
Their current challenge is called "Chest of drawers".
Then there's this gorgeous color combo over at Alley Way Stamps. Finally decided to play along.
I took me some liberties... It's a card.
I recently discovered the challenges at Coredinations. Love their CS. Colored core. The current challenge was actually my starting point for this project I think. I'm not actually sure if it's a challenge. Their website is quite confusing... Anyway, cool photo. Gotta love Anthropologie.
Used my Coredinations whitewashed CS to create the drawers. Sanded the edges to bring the color out.
And to give credit where credit's due... check out JJ's modern and fab card to see why I decided I could actually come up with something for Lessology's theme! Cuz I'd love to win me some "chicken soup is good for the soul" stamps :)
