My P&A Family

Janis says, KAYA!

In these hard times, recycling makes perfect sense. I asked my officemates for coasters (broken CDs) and ribbons (coming from the early gifts of our big bosses ) and then made these for them (simple drilling of the CDs, paper cutting, matting then just adding the twigs and the berries with a glue gun). They were surprised at how beautiful the "scraps" turned out to be (my director even told me to consider going into this kind of business.) I initially made solo shots of us, hopefully I can also include group shots.

Thanks Candy for this challenge.



Materials Used:
Recycled CDs, ribbons, AAS handmade papers, gold twigs and glittered green berries, gold string, gluestick, tacky glue.
