Lessology

Lessology is a new challenge blog founded by Angie and Yvonne.  It is a challenge blog dedicated to altered things, hmmmm!!! Does that sound to you a ton like me!!! I am willing and able to alter anything that comes my way, specially if it's something that has seen it's prime and needs to be reused in another way!
They are looking for a new design team member, they want us to apply with our work, I first heard about the blog by Audrey, I can consider her my friend, although we have never met each other outside the blogosphere I bet you our conversation would go endless if we ever met each other face to face, I admire her work very much.  So I decided to apply considering the subject is something pretty much my alley! Here is a lamp I gave new life to, basically rescued from the trash and turned to treasure!




There is a lot of love and work into this one, I used cardstock to cover up the beaten shade and misted it with some stencils, reused a piece of old lace for the bottom, flowers are old and new, butterfly is new.
If you look around my blog you will find a lot of projects that are off the page , I love creating from nothing, even constructing out from discarded cardboard boxes and reused chipboard, just take a look and see that altering stuff is just second nature to me
a pincushion out of repurposed canvas and recycled felt!
recycled glass, ball and papers
pure repurposed chipboard and paint
from scrap paper
recycled packaging...
Well I just feel like I would  LOVE to be a part of you guys and would be a great addition to the team!
