Recycle Re-Purpose Re-Invent Feb15 Feb 28 Must Recycle

Any Thing Goes but must Recycle: Feb 15 - Feb 28

It is always such a pleasure to see all the wonderful projects you all continue to share with us.  Your creativity and imagination is so inspiring to us and we hope you will continue to visit us. :)

Our Main Theme is always Anything Goes but remember you must recycle in your project. Along with the Anything Goes Theme our Team usually picks an additional theme that reflects in the projects we share with you and for this challenge it is called Out of this World..

A Note about Our Winners: We were going to announce past winners today, but this will be delayed until March. I have been ill and have gotten quite behind in things lately and I have not had a chance to visit all your sites yet. Once I have done this, the team and I will choose winners for all the challenges we have not yet posted winners for. We haven't forgotten you, we just need more time and thank you all for being so patient.

An now from some  inspiration from Team Member Judy who is sharing her Out of this World project.

This is what I started with for my project although I did end up needing more cardboard.

This was my completed Project. 

I used one of CS Designs' digital stamps from the Celestial design stamps series called Celestial Goddess Montage Square.  I fell in love with this image.  I used this woven tray I had that was a tray that held a sliver plate and large candle. I thought it made a nice frame for the goddess. I covered that frame with some black and silver napkins I had and glues them down with gel medium.  The stars were cut out of the boxes I had then painted with silver paint. To give the stars more life I added some doodling. 

The background of the image was coloured with Copic Markers and glitter. I cut out a second image of the face and layered it over the original image and coloured it with PanPastels.

The sentiment is also from CS Designs and is from the Stars and Celestial Sentiment digital collection. I think it is a very beautiful saying.
