(Super Late) Earth Day Projects

I know that it has been a while, okay a long while, since my last post.  However, I wanted to pop in and share some projects that I created in honor of Earth Day (which was forever ago).  These little projects were created using all upcycled products including button envelopes, spam mail envelopes, plastic product packaging, toilet paper rolls, the pretty packaging of scrapbook supplies, and used card envelopes.  Here is the first project that I created using these supplies AND scraps of paper, no new sheets (I love that):

I tried a new technique with the cover - using modeling paste/embossing pasted and coloring it with my glimmer mist.  I just love the way that it turned out.

The envelope page is created using Laura Denison's envelope pocket tutorial on YouTube.  I just loved it, and the idea that I would have an endless supply of envelopes I would never have to purchase (since I save the junk mail envelopes and use those instead).  Thankyou Laura Denison and unwanted mail senders.

This is the second project that I made - much quicker and more simple.  I ripped out the insides of an old photo alum I found in a thrift store.  I liked the beautiful French Country pattern on the front.  The inside is filled with pieces of whatever I had laying around that had a nice little pattern to it.  Not sure what I will fill it with yet, but I have something to play with when the time comes. 

Thanks for stopping by and taking a quick gander at my lovely paper playing projects!  I hope you enjoyed and have a lovely art inspired day.
