LESSology .. guest designer

woohoo !! I am so  thrilled to be a guest designer over at
pop on over to see all the fabulous CREATIONS from the Design team.
this site is the brain child of Angi Barrs and Yvonne Yam
creating items using at least one up-cycled item .

challenge #9 is to create an inspiration board.
my up-cycled items are
lace doilies, buttons, dressmaking tissue, muslin 

 my idea was to turn a canvas inside out and embellish it with chipboard
and design some tags which hold affirmations .

my intention is to create some more tags through the year and have 
7 each week ... 
so I can pick a tag each day
 and have a positive affirmation to repeat to myself all through the day 

above is my old lace doilie.

 my canvas turned inside out 

my upcycled items were some old doilies from the second hand shop
 ( I purchased 20  for $5 .. a bargain) 
some buttons and a strip of old dressmaking tissue 
thanks so much to Angie and Yvonne for having me 
I really enjoyed making this project .

thanks for looking everyone and hope I have inspired you 
my canvas sits on my kitchen dresser where I 
choose a new affirmation each day 
big hugz from me xoxox
