A special canvas by Titbelsoeur

Salut les copines !
This is a very special canvas I want to share with you today, for 2 reasons : first it is fully made with recycled stuff, and second, this is going to be a long story... let's make it short ! One night, not well sleeping, I thought about the scrapbooking day that has no counterpart in mixed-media... so why not organizing a mixed-media day ? then I got in touch with 4 friends of mine to ask them if they wanted to share this odd journey with me, and they said YES ! So the 5 of us are currently leading a French forum named "Patouille et R├ęcup" sponsored by The Artistic Stamper, each one of us presenting and tutoring her creation during 4 weeks (a single week-end was too short), and here is mine :

 an old bulb, colored with alcohol inks..

 some tea bags...


the structure is made from a rice box, the lady's dress with junk envelopes, buttons, cogs, beads, a perfume sample... and even a "hello George" coffee pad, that makes a very nice hat !



And, of course, a lot of Artistic Stamper stamps :

I hope you like my "canvas",
thanks for stopping by, 
I am looking forward to reading your comments ! 
See you again soon...
