Every picture tells a story

The challenge set on Arty Girlz was to recycle something. Inspired by Julie's project I decided to alter a picture frame.


The picture frame was bought years ago from Ikea & had been sitting unused ever since in my stationery drawer.


I covered the frame using words from the first chapter of the book that I never finished writing – time to put it to good use.

The paint was found in the garage – a 75ml test pot from Texas Homecare. Memory eludes me as to why it was bought.

The flowers were made from leftover card, printed out for an earlier project.

The frame is shown here displaying an Artist Trading Card which was made for a recycling challenge earlier this year. See here for details.
