Abby’s debut…..

 in My Minds Eye, cardboard and some white paint.  Yes, cardboard.! Can you see it in this layout?  Check out the close-ups and you’ll definitely find the corrugated cardboard.  I tore the plain old cardboard from a box, painted it with white acrylic paint and inked the edges with some Blackbird Color Box Chalk.  Didn’t it add some cool texture and depth to this LO!  I just love it! 
There is one more recycled piece too.  It’s the black mat behind my 5×7″ photo of Abby.  I don’t remember where it came from exactly, but it’s a heavy chipboard-like material.  I painted it’s edges to add some interest make it pop a little more.
Also, in this layout: green seam binding, Tim Holtz Metal Keys & Distress Crackle Paint (over chipboard letters), Maya Road chipboard letters “abby”, Tattered Angels Banner & Glimmer Mist, a Jenni Bowlin mini calendar (November) & a super cute journaling tag from Shabby Chic Crafts.  (Thank you again Michelle B!)

I hope you’re inspired to recycle something cool into your next layout!  Just think of the possibilities around your house alone. 
Thank for stopping by & remember to do something creative today!
