Recycling Art - Scrapping, Altered Art and Book Page Flowers



I've discovered JeNi cAlKins on Spellbinders, and her great use of recycling for the cause, lol, bee-cause we all need a little of that in our art - the more, the better actually.

Jeni does these fantastic recycled book pages "flowers" {can't help it - I am in a flowers-sort-of-mood these days!}.......are they not sweet?

She also mentions that she takes papers that she bought for less, and ups their attractiveness levels by spritzing on colour with water-based mediums {i.e. re-inkers, etc.} - which I have also done with sponges and regular paints myself. So a little ingenuity can go a looooong way!

Anyways, Jeni has some really great ideas going on - zoom by her place - you'll be happy you did!
