Using up those scraps!

At Try it on Tuesday we are 'Using our Stash' for the next two weeks. Quite an open theme - but my interpretation was to use all the bits lying around that were leftover from other projects or made but never used!
I started with the tag from some Tim Holtz paper that I had cut out for something but it didn't work! So I decided to create a collage around this. The background is corrugated cardboard. Lots of painting, stencilling, inking, stamping and gluing!





It's quite therapeutic using all the bits that are lying around and making them into something - give it a go!

I am entering this is into Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes.

Thanks for looking
