Recycling a Notepad

Hi, its time for another Smudger Challenge.....September's challenge is Reduce Reuse Recycle...... a bit of mouthful............lol  My choice was to Recycle a Wilko Handy Jotter.



Printed  Helmet Girl (from Smudger Digi Store) onto a Canvas Sheet, cut to size then painted with Acrylic paints.  The swirl stamps are by Inkadinkado.  Edged with Gold Paint Dabber and the rest from stash.   O'oops forgot to mention I lined the underneath of the Canvas with patterned cardstock.
Yep 18 pence from good old Wilkinsons.  A bargain.

Andrea has just released a new digi called Russian Girl and of course had to have her.



Painted in Acrylics, mounted on Black Shiny Card.  Embossed the readymade card and stamped the greeting (which was a freebie)  Covered the hat with Flowersoft and little spots of Icicle Stickles;  popped on some small flowers.  Loving this Girl with her character face, she makes me smile.

Am entering the card into the House that Stamps Built who are asking for Flowers.
The altered notebook am entering it into The Stamp Man Challenge which is to Alter It.

After Monday this week we will be away for a few days at Stratford on Avon, so won't be seeing you, but look forward to catching up when I return.  In the meantime take great care of yourselves and thank you for all your support.  Hugs Annette xx
