Turn old things that are unused into things that can be used.
Upcycling, recycling, renewing, reviving, reusing…I’m all for it.
Recently I went to the markets to do some research on set up, aesthetic etc. One market stall had a beautiful banner strung from the crossbars of the tent and it looked lovely. I came home to make a banner and found some old canvas photo paper in my stash. I have just painted all of the a4 sheets and cut into banner pieces. Im going to string them together and use them for my tent.
These were simple and easy to create. I used a mixture of acrylic paint, Dylusions inks and posca pens.
I made a cardboard template the right size and I got 3 pieces from each a4 sheet.
I love using things up to make something special. This canvas photo paper has been in my stash for over 10 years and I probably would have thrown it out. So this was a great inexpensive decoration for me.
Recycle something and feel good about it.
Happy crafty weekend friends.
