You know what really makes me happy? Making something new out of things that would otherwise be thrown away or over-looked. I've no idea where this love of busting stash came from, but it really floats my boat!
I sat down last night with several pieces of card that had been 'ruined' by my practice attempts with my new Cosmic Shimmer Mists. I cut them down into tag shapes, then added a ton of teeny, tiny paper scraps and mis-matched embellishments to make a cute, dinky, little mini-book for my Learn Something New Every Day album. And, because I haven't used anything new, I'm fulfilling my Stashbusting September obligations as well. Result!
I'm going to add smaller sized photographs and my 'lessons learnt' as and when I manage to have my photographs printed. For now, I'm keeping my notebook handy and jotting everything down everything I learn - like, "Leftovers make pretty projects."
