So here we are on the second week of the challenge. Week 1 has really flown past. The prompt for Week 2 is "Reuse/Recycle".
For my tag, I started by tearing a section off a cardboard box, stripping the paper layer on one side to expose the ridged middele layer. I then used some white emulsion paint to coat the piece of card. While that was drying, I rescued other bits and pieces from the recycle box.
The next was the waxed paper from a sleeve of breakfast cereal (Weetabix). I scrunched the paper then lightly smoothed it. I then inked the paper using a grey colour, which hit only the high spots on the paper, creating a mottled/marbled/textured effect. Other items I rescued were clothes tags, black and white bar codes from products and a section of an entrance ticket.
I also used some sections of die cuts from my scrap paper box and a stamped image. Adding a stray button and some tags too.
