Altered Blue Frame
I've mentioned before that I am a paper hoarder, however it doesn't stop with new collections or new papers. I hoard all my scraps of papers as well. Boxes and plastic container fulls. Little pieces that could and should be thrown out I tell myself somewhere, sometime I WILL need that and into a box it goes. The same with bits of ribbons, buttons, pearls and well basically everything.
Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge # 2 is "Let's See That Hoard". This challenge had a color scheme to go by, Blues. The challenge was to pick the thing or things you hoard the most and use them, but only things falling into the color scheme.
Well paper is really my downfall so of course once again that is the main hoarded item that I used in this project, but not new papers. I delved into my precious hoard and stacks of paper scraps
I had an old frame that was fit for the trash, no way to keep the glass in, the back didn't attach ( of course it never made it to the garbage but to my shelf where it sat until today)
Using bits of torn paper I covered the frame changing it from basics white to a patchwork of blues and patterns. I use spare bits of ribbon to fill in empty or not so great looking spaces.
Below is my Altered Blue Frame
