A journey through stuff

I promised to show my second attempt on upcycling my paper scraps. The first one was blogged here. The paper scraps are nice and colorful and I always think 'I could still use this'. Well, time to show I not only 'could' but can!
 - welcome blog hoppers -
I started by gluing strips and pieces of paper onto my card backs. I stayed fairly color-coordinated because I knew I wanted a rather open background with little product.
Here you can see the stenciled layer on top of all and sundry.

Next I unified the background by some pale mold green ink and olive dots through a stencil.

Voila, finished. As this was my journey through old craft stuff I thought it only proper to apply the journey theme a bit further:

 entering this set into:
Country View Challenges: #39 Use a Stencil
Frilly & Funkie: Oh the places you'll go
Crafty Individuals: Anything goes (with CI product) third time this month! What can I say, I have been very inspired.

  5. Hei! Kyselit kulkureittiä Matka Luovuuteen-tapahtumaan Sopukkaan. Vastasin blogiin, ja tässä vielä tännekin sama vastaus. Pahoittelut että kesti!
    Hei Alice! Itäkeskuksesta menee bussi numero 841 suoraan Sopukan eteen. Matka-aika Itäkeskuksesta on noin 18 minuuttia.
    Itäkeskukseen puolestaan pääsee kätevimmin metrolla keskustan suunnasta, tai useilla linja-autoilla.

  6. Three wonderful ATCs, I really love them.
    Also the sentiments and quotes are beautiful used with these images, the atmosphere is fantastic. Thanks you for joining in the Crafty Individuals challenge, good luck!
