I have to say I just LOVE altered items! I set my self a goal this year to scrap at least one off the page (OTP) or altered project per month this year – so far so good!
I spend (well if I am going to be truthful it’s more like waste!) so much time checking out awesome projects on Pinterest and thought I might just share some of the inspiration I have come across with you today:
Up-cycling old items to give them a new life via scrapbooking is a great way to decorate and recycle. Below is a few of my altered projects from my personal challenge this year:
I frequent second-hand and op shops to find items to alter and scrap. When choosing the items I don’t look at what they are now but I look for the potential they have to become an interesting and cool OTP project. I have made living books, journal covers, decorated handmade gift bags, mini canvases and I have even updated an old temperature gauge that started off life as a Port Douglas souvenir.
Why not try your hand at OTP and give some outdated items a new lease on life?
