Be Inspired by Art

The theme for Leonie’s Fab Friday Artist Trading Card Challenge this week is Recycle.

Here is my recipe for Recycled Art.

  • Take one piece of mountboard – an off cut donated to me by a picture framing demonstrator at a craft show earlier this year.
  • Find a background – a picture of a beach hut from a Laura Ashley brochure.
  • Find an image or two – a picture of an oil painting & one of a sculpture, in last week’s Sunday Times supplement.
  • Find some wording – words & letters cut from the back of a Pizza Express box.
  • Finally, take all the ingredients & mix thoroughly to create a new piece of individual & original art.


    1. Good ole Pizza boxes eh! It's great when you can use the inside and the out. Great card as ever Daisy.
