Helga's Weekly Challenge
Yay! I'm finally caught up enough with everything else that I get to play in one of Helga's Challenges. I always love her challenges. It makes me stretch my thinking.
This week's Challenge is to "play with your scraps". First thing I did was go through my trash. I usually don't have a large amount of scraps. Then I went over the top of my desk and found the two pieces on the left. The one on the right I had thrown away. I also had a piece of copper German Scrap that I had cut down. Then there is the FROM strip. I used the rest of it on my lottery piece this week.
The tag came from a friend and the zipper pull is recycled. It's one of my favorite additions to my art. I've used many this year, and have a hard time finding them. I usually look while I'm at garage sales. The new ones aren't as nice looking and vintage. This is a newer version...but it was the right color.
I laid my ATC down inside a copper bowl and took this picture. The additional things I used was a poinsettia sticker and some copper Stickles. The colors are very rich.
