Recycled Plastic!

May 1st 2012


Wow what a great response we had to our very first challenge at "Recycle, Re-Purpose & Re-Invent" last month - thanks so much to everyone who joined in - we hope to see your creations again this month for our new challenge!!

Bonus Round PRIZE!!
Our new challenge is to recycle something plastic - what interesting plastic object can you recycle??? By using a plastic item and letting us know what it is you will be eligible for our Bonus Sentiment Prize!! If you just want to play along and show us your recycling skills with what you have on hand we would love to see your "Anything Goes" recycled creations too. So you can link up any recycled project plus you can enter our bonus challenge and have the opportunity to win the prize!!


I've recycled a plastic moisturiser lid, in fact most of the elements on my hanging are recycled - the black straps are from a broken necklace, the beads have been "floating" around my craft area for quite sometime and the starfish are from some form of broken object.

I use a great Aquatic themed image "Sea Nymph" from CS Designs and printed it on watercolour paper them used an Aquawash pen and watercolour pencils to colour the image. I caoted the image, starfish and lid with a clear blueish glittery paint to add some sparkle.


I can't wait to see what everyone can come up with for this new challenge - and remember by recycling you are helping save the planet plus it's a lot of fun to see what you can create with bits & pieces!!!!

Fabulous up-cycled art Sharon.
There is nothing quite as satisfying as using household items that would normally be placed in the rubbish bin.

The colour scheme you have chosen has high impact - the orange against blue (which begins with the recycled lid. I really like this.

What a clever use for a lid! I absolutely love the creativity shown here. The image works beautifully and the dangly bits are so fun.
