New Challenges at AWNB & Recycle, RePurpose & ReInvent

Hi, everyone!  Are you experiencing the heat wave?  If so, I hope you're managing to stay cool!

The new challenge at Art With No Boundaries is Anything Goes and the bonus round is Summer Skies.   

The new Cosmo image from CS Designs is beautiful!   I colored her with Copics and then embroidered her hair with metallic gold thread. 

In my mind, Cosmo became the keeper of constellations.   I remembered these extremely cool constellation cards that I've had forever - the originals are from 1825.  I sewed up a pocket from vintage ledger paper and created some bookmarks to pop inside.

I used four of the constellation cards to create the bookmarks.  I based the color of Cosmo's hair on the lions and the Pegasus.  

Now on to Recycle, Re-Purpose and Re-Invent.   This challenge is also Anything Goes as long as you recycle something.  

Everything on my card below is created with or stamped on old tractor feed invoices from my office that we no longer use.  I've created all kinds of things with these to decorate for our Christmas lunch at work:  Christmas trees, snowflakes, ornaments...

And now a card! 

This cutie is Priscilla and she is also created by Chris at CS Designs.  Be sure to check both blogs for wonderful creations by the DT.  I hope you join us for both challenges -  I would love to see your creations!


  1. Fab-U-lous! Both projects are wonderful. Cosmo's embroidered hair is brilliant and your colouring is stunning. Priscilla is adorable. Such a cool idea to use those tractor invoices. I just love the whimsy and delicateness of your projects.
