Do you remember the days when you bought loads of peel off sheets? I'm sure some of you do.
When I first started crafting I used to visit Topaz near Accrington - there use to be a whole area of peel offs - often on offer and I was always fascinated by the variety.
I now still have quite a lot left, even though I have given a lot away.
Of course once I discovered stamps and the joy of mixed media crafting they have stayed in a little box…until I had a sort out…what to do?
I hate waste so I am trying to find ways of using them so here is one way I have tried.
The message is simple…
…in this case I am using what I have - a background made with ink watered down to make it go further, mopped up even further with a piece of corrugated card to stamp with, unfortunately my intention to use that piece did't work out as it was VERY soggy!
The ziggy zaggy bits at the bottom were the result of a die slipping(the same one as I have used at the top corner which is part of an old envelope)I quite like this effect so kept all of the bits! The leaves wouldn't cut very well, broke up and have been in my scrap box for a while so I trimmed them with scissors. The peel off is mounted onto a piece of bread wrapper.
I know I am not the only one to have lots of scraps and un-used items so I hope I have given you some ideas on how to use some of them.
This is my latest entry to Art Journal Journey - 'If you go down to the woods'
Hope you are all enjoying the Easter break!
Thanks for looking, Chris
