It has been said that "one man's trash is another man's treasure." While visiting my friend Donna recently, we decided to put this expression to the test. We dug through her
trash/scrap bin in search of elusive treasures. These are the bits and pieces that were never used from cast off die cuts and stamped images to recycled tags and
Do you keep a bits & pieces bin? If not, after today's pictures,
you just might want to start!
SCORE! One of my favorite pieces from Donna's scrap bin was this watercolor/heat embossed "oops." I thought it was beautiful! Donna said she really didn't know the story behind this fabulous find. But, with a little creative ingenuity and some new eyes, it was transformed:
My next treasure was a beautiful watercolored image (barely visible on the lower ride side of the photo above). The scene was already perfect (to me), but, I added some popped up clouds, a bright and cheery sentiment, plus LOTS of clear Wink of Stella for added sparkle and dimension.
It's totally true! One man (or woman's) trash IS another's treasure!
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
