Rockin recycling christmas
So now you have the explanation, the colours are my sons favourites he loves turquoise, he had a pair of turquoiise trousers a couple of years ago and when he started to look like sport billy as they were half way up his calfs I had to make them into shorts and we had to go hunting for some more fabric to make another pair. Most of his other trousers are navy or black but if these are clean he will wear his turquoise ones, not so much in winter as they are a bit light weight. I just wish he would stop growing then I won't have to look for more when these start to look daft from being too short again.
The papers are from DCWV roskstar stack that the last time son was craft shopping with me he picked as he loved the papers but as yet I hadn't used them as I hadn't found an appropriate image, have now though. I added confetti snowflakes for a more christmassy feel. The image I coloure with promarkers and sakura glaze pens. I added stickles and more smaller confetti snowflakes. I mounted on some ancient turquoise mirri card that I have had so long I have no idea where it came from , wish I did as I love it and am now down to just a couple of sheets. The ribbon is from my stash and the charm I got from the garden centre in the summer.
Oops for got to say the recycling bit, the sentiment 'Rocks' I cut from the front of the paper stack, well it just seem to fit just right.
