Recycled book





I love old books and I have used a lot of torn out pages in backgrounds and in creating embellishments such as flowers, this time I have used the entire book...minus some torn out pages wich were used to make backgrounds and flowers :)

The matte paper/card behind the image is a recycled toilet roll tube, which I put through the cuttlebug before staining and rusting.

Love this! A recycled toilet roll tube? Amazing. I love recycling stuff myself. I just mad a 'frame' out of the backing card from a pad of scrapbook paper. It's so rewarding to make something out of nothing.
