Recycle, Re-Purpose & Re-Invent

Guess what?  I get to announce that I'm on the design team for CS Designs!!  I'm so excited - Chris's images are cool, mod, appealing, and wonderful all at the same time.  She has a couple of challenge blogs and this post is for Recyle, Re-Purpose & Re-Invent.   The  main theme is Anything Goes (with some item recycled) and the bonus theme is Heavy Metal (recycle something metal in your project).

I printed Metal and Screws on linen.  It really gave her a cool texture.  Then as you can probably tell I repurposed a doorknob and some screws.

Love the metal plate tags - aren't they cool?

I hope you'll come play along at Recycle, Re-Purpose & Re-Invent.  You've got all month to join us.


  1. Lori,You've added a touch of feminine beauty to Steampunk. You've also brought something quite different to my designs and I love what you've done with this.

  2. Lori,
    She's a beauty. What a clever idea to use an old doorknob for the base. The texture from the linen is a wonderful addition to this piece. Very cool.

  3. I came over from RRR to say how much I like your project. Beautiful design and the doorknob has the double benefit of being both pretty and useful! Vee xx

  4. Bit scatterbrained today, I suppose as I came to say Congratulations on joining the CS Design Team. Vee xx
