Recycle/Upcycle - Simon Monday Challenge


I am absolutely thrilled about this post.
This is my very first project as a DT Member of my dreamy Simon Monday Challenge Blog. This is the post that makes me finally believe it's happening!
I am extremely happy about it and want to thank the Team to have chosen me.
I will do my best to represent them as creatively as I can...
Ok, let's do that!
This challenge is about Recycle/Upcycle things.
Some time ago I thought it would be funny to alter a small tin of sardines.
To be honest, it's one of the smallest projects I've ever done, the thing has only 5x10 cm and it's really cute. I felt like Alice in the Wonderland working on it.


For that project I played with Distress Inks, some embossing and crackle paste.
To give it a little bit of vintage and retro look, I embellished it with a cotton lace.
As a final touch I put some small selfmade flowers inked with yellow distress ink and a Tim Holtz pen nib. 





Now it's your turn to share with us your recycled/upcycled projects.
I'm sure you will have so much fun with altering things.

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving a $50 voucher to shop at the greatest Simon Says Stamp Store. Don't miss the chance to win it!

    Twój projekt jest po prostu świetny! Nie pomyślałabym nigdy żeby wykorzystać w ten sposób puszkę po sardynkach. Nie pozostaje mi nic jak tylko kupić kilka puszek. Bardzo podobają mi się detale, naprawdę urocze :-)

    Witaj w drużynie! Woo Hoo!! Naprawdę bardzo się cieszę, że dołączyłaś do nas, YAY! :-)

  7. Your altered sardine can project is sweet! Nothing like the original thing :) I usually stay far away from my husband's sardines, but looks like I might have to start saving up some of the tins! Wonderful little project, Macerena! Welcome to the team, I am looking forward to creating with you!

  13. Macarena! I am so thrilled that you're on our Simon team! I've seen so many clever and inspiring things on your blog and was already a fan before I knew you'd been selected. Yay! And what a great project to start with! I love how you included so many clever elements. It has depth and dimension and texture without being too crazy. It's just perfect and I can't wait to see the other ways you interpret our themes!
