D-lish Scraps September Cybercrop challenge 1 by Alz

Amanda at D-lish Scraps has run another successful cybercrop this month, with 5 challenges. The first of these challenges was set by my dear friend and very talented Alz Callcott, in which the challenge was to upcycle something, whether it be for a layout, card or OTP. I chose to do a layout.
Over the last few months, I have been successfully submitting layouts for publication to Scrapbooking Memories. Many of the talented scrapbookers who are sending in layouts are decorating their pizza boxes, and I received a decorated pizza box recently decorated by Fiona Paltridge, yet another very talented artist. This pizza box was so battered, it was beyond using again for sending any more layouts in, so I decided to upcycle the box lid for my layout. Most of the work was done for me by Fiona, and it was an amazing piece of art, far too good to throw away. I added a little to the intial artwork, by adding some stamping, and rubons. The D-lish Scraps products used on the layout are button flair, monochrome journal its, coloured paper doily and small paper roses.
Thankyou Fiona for the fantastic artwork.
These photos were taken in one of the Victorian goldmining towns called Castlemaine, a great place for some goldfields history, photos taken in the historical botanical gardens.
Thanks for looking at my layout.

  1. WOW Sandra you have definitely rejuvenated this poor old pizza box. What a fantastic idea! I absolutely love that you've taken a piece of my art and made it your own. So honoured that you wanted to keep it xx Maybe one day I'll receive one of yours and I can return the favor :)

  2. Clever you to recycle an artwork and add your own bits to it. Looks great.
