Flowers of Tomorrow

Hi everyone.

I am back with another project for Reycle, Re-Purpose  and Re-Invent

I created this wall hanging using beautiful rich autumn colours.
I used 3 of CS Designs images (can you see the 3rd poking through behind the girl?)
I thought this quote seemed to be perfect for this hanging.

I used several recycled items on my project.
Firstly, my background is built using several layers of cereal box, glued together.
This does provide a really nice sturdy base.
The swirl die cut and the punched fronds also use old cereal boxes.
My doily uses some old packing and the bow uses some scrap patterned paper.
I also tucked some soft drink can ring pulls behind my flowers.
Finally, I added apple cider bottle caps as my flower centres.
Aren't the bottle caps perfect for this project?
Not only are the colours rich, but they also have apples on them.

Thanks for stopping by today.
Make sure you go check out what all the other design team members are creating.

You have until October 31st to enter the challenge, so go have some fun and recycle, 
re-purpose and re-invent.

Happy Crafting.

  1. Hi Angela, This is a really beautiful piece. I love how you have incorporated Cosmo into your Fall Garden. You colored her beautifully and she looks right at home among the flowers and your recycled bits. I also love how your used the Apple Cider bottle caps for the centers of your flowers, very ingenious.
