:::Using Trash:::

klaartje.jpg

Our hostess this week is Klaartje who has a very creative challenge for all of you. She created this precious arch using “trash” – items you would normally throw away….think package labels, bubble wrap, a lid of a tincan and…..?
We can’t wait to see what you create with items you would normally purge!!

About our hostess:

Hi! My name is Klaartje, 29 years old and living in the Netherlands.
I’ve been stamping since October 2003 and was immediately totally addicted!
Luckily I had a stampstore about 5 km away. Now I work there 4 or 5 days a week!
Yesterday (1 Maart) I gave my first workshop! Which was a bit scary….. but it went good!
 

As theme for this challenge I chose ‘Using trash’. Just use what you would normally throw
away like packagelabels, bubblewrap, a lid of a tincan and…..?
I can’t wait to see what you do with this theme!

  2. gosh what a challenge…. i used ‘trash’ to make my background rather than adding any elements…. used stale bread, yoghurt pot, used tea bag and an old net for putting washing tablets into.
