Welcome to EcoScrapbook’s Earth Day Blog Hop! You should have arrived from Its Fun2Scrap. Be sure to check everyone’s posts out. I know Danielle (our lovely host at EcoScrapbook) has a giveaway and there might be another one along the way.
I wrote about ten ways to use found items a few months ago and thought that today I would show you how I might use a found item. I keep a basket of random found items to use on my layouts. Mostly, it includes pretty tissue paper, coffee cup sleeves, interesting tags off of clothing, and other random bits of packaging. (Yes, I am well aware of the cultural appropriation used in the found item I have selected for today. Read more about cultural appropriation here and here.)
I got this little booklet from Teavana and thought the weight and texture of the paper would be neat to use as the base of a mini-book.
Of course, since I am doing this project last minute, it is not finished. My daughter enjoys fishing at her Papa’s house. I have the photos from last summer printed and I already have a lot from this spring that need edited and printed. I decided to use some of these photos so that way she can easily look at photos of herself fishing anytime she wants. I will most likely finish the base and add 2-3 photos from last year, 2-3 from this year, and save a couple of pages for next year. Here’s what I have so far:
And in the spirit of being green, I have a canvas bag to giveway! Just tell me how you are green in your scrapbooking in the comments section for a chance to win! I will draw a winner on Tuesday, April 24, 2012 at midnight (central standard time).
Thanks for stopping by! Next stop on the hop is Almost Never Clever.
