Artastic with recycled materials

You can always guarantee that if there is a challenge I will go outside the square and think of something different. In my case I chose to do a baby photo.
 My layout  for Artastic, ended up rather shabby chic but much of it is recycled. The book papers are from an old encyclopaedia that I tore up.
The strip of vintage lace is from a petticoat of my mothers.
The other lace flower is cut from wedding dress scraps.
The 2 doileys were actually under a coffee at a local café (I knew they'd come in handy) and the shiny cream paper which I punched and inked was the back of a wedding invitation.The 2 chipboard flowers are from another layout that I dismantled.
I love the quote so wanted to use the fabric idea and run with it.

Haha I love the idea of using doilies from under a coffee - just another excuse to head to a cafe! Ive actually had some coasters saved from my travels as a teenager that I might use one day!
This turned out really well - love the soft feel....

Oh I'm so glad I'm not the only one tucking those doilies in my handbag at cafes. I love the use of the fabric and lace, along with the encyclopaedia pages, they all tie in together so nicely. Gorgeous.
