It is time for the new challenge at Frilly and Funkie. Suzz is our hostess this time and she is calling it It's Not Easy Being Green. She describes it this way:
"In honor of Earth Day, which is April 22nd, create an UPCYCLED project. Repurpose an existing item, Recycle an element that would usually be thrown away, or use your paper scraps in a creative way"
Until his recent retirement my husband worked for the traffic department of our regional municipality. One day he came home with a couple of these and asked if I wanted them for my crafting - he had rescued them from the scrap heap. This is a lens from a set of LED traffic signals and would cover one of the lights; red, amber, green or the advance arrow. I stuck them in a cupboard in my studio and when Suzz set the challenge a light went off in my head (no pun intended) and I knew what I would make with it.
Normally this is where I would tell you how I made my project but to get all the details of this flower fairy hanging you will have to wait until Saturday when I will do a Step x Step over at Frilly and Funkie.
I am going to enter this project in the following challenges:
Avenue 613 - Anything Goes with a twist (use something recycled)
Eclectic Ellapu - Spring Flowers/April Showers
Creative Corner - Spring Flowers
Altered Eclectics - Anything Goes - Mixed Media/Altered Art (no cards, ATCs)
Country View Challenges - Spring
Crafts and Me - Fairies and Magic
Moving Along With The Times - Spring Flowers
