How about a fun tutorial from our Maven Tanya.....
I was asked by Kim to do a tutorial for Sketches In Thyme, and at first I was stumped. But then while cleaning up my desk I came across these photos of Karlye, left over bits from trimming my stamps, and many left over coffee sleeves. Then the light bulb went off. I decided to show you some creative uses for items otherwise put in the recycle bin.
I then went into my recycling bin and removed a margarine tub and a bead jar lid. I got my inks out and inked up the rims to make the circles on the bottom left side of my layout. Within the larger picture you can see that my daughter used a dragonfly foam stamp, so I incorporated that into the sketch by stamping and cutting one out for the top embellishment.
frugal, the definition being; economical in use or expenditure; prudently saving or sparing; not wasteful.
After reading my tutorial, I would love it if you left me some tips on what you do to re-use items in your house. Some of you may be concerned about things being Acid Free. I know you can purchase spray that will make things acid free. I do not have any as it is difficult to get in Canada, but my re-used items don't touch my photos that much so all should be well. Not to mention I have a digital copy now.
Thanks for taking the time to read my tutorial.
Isn't this an incredible tutorial? If you try it, we'd love for you to leave a link in the comments here!
