ON-GOING Arty Girlz RECYCLING Challenge!!

Arty Girlz have decided to have an On-going 'Recycling' Challenge and we would love to see all your art work that contains elements of recycling.

You can participate as many times as you like so everytime your creation contains items that you have recycled please leave a comment here with a link to your work so that we can all see what you have created.

We thought this would be a good way of getting together and sharing ideas for recycling and doing our little bit for the environment :)

We would love for you to display the Arty Girlz Recycling Challenge banner on your blog or website
<a href="http://artygirlzchallengeblog.blogspot.com/2008/05/on-going-arty-girlz-recycling-challenge.html"><img border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket" src="http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c193/me-to-you/ongoing76.jpg"/></a>


Just copy the code in the scroll box and paste into a new html page element on your blog or website

Beverly Todd is our Guest Designer/featured artist for this ongoing challenge and look at her fabulous creation which she created using a grocery box as the base material

Beverly is a very busy lady and serves on many design teams. She also runs a forum and a shop click HERE to go to her fab Crafty Moments blog :)

So to kick start the challenge here are our Recycled Creations as seen in Challenge #35

Crissi's altered Can: with other recycled elements

Julie's recyled Ice lolly stick & Newspaper


For everyone that has joined in with Recycling Challenge #35 please add the link to your recyled creation here also :)

Joanne said...

I have been too busy finding my feet in the blogging world to be very observant, and have only just noticed and wandered over to the Arty Girlz Blog to find this recycling challenge! Anyway - cheating a little here as it is one that I made a couple of weeks ago -- I have a card that uses a deep red envelope I received in the post. I used it to make the flower and for the red mat behind the backing paper.

Hanne said...

This is a great idea!!
I didn't reads this properly, so I thought this challenge already was over... but I've decorated an empty box, which can be seen in my blog under the title "S√łtt sukker..." Hopefully it can be combinated with other challenges, otherwise you can just have a look if you want to!

Hanne:)

Dreamer said...

I originally thought the suggestion to add my work to the recyling challenge meant put it in the bin!

Anyway here is my effort. Glad to do my bit for the environment

Rosie said...
