Everything on this one is SERIOUSLY old stash. It's no secret that I love stash-busting, but I'm also on a scrapbooking SPEND FREEZE - inspired by Moira O'Reilly. I started in November, and I'm aiming for ONE FULL YEAR with no spending on new scrapbooking products. My personal rules are:

1. Permitted items - essential consumables (gesso, cutting blades, adhesives), album supplies (page sleeves, rings etc)
2. Gift/prize vouchers can be used, but no 'add ons'
3. Replacement items permitted - ONLY if I've used the last one the same colour, e.g. red paint, yellow rhinestones, cotton thread

Rainforest Voices

In 2023 I want to challenge myself to be more adventurous with mixed media, and this is my first dabble for the year.



Inspired by, and sharing at Scrapping Clearly for the January Mood Affirmation challenge ~


I was inspired by the colour palette and the CREATIVITY theme. I made my background with a few different greens from GlimmerMist and Dylusions ink sprays, and I layered a lime green napkin for my photo mats. The images are cut from a BioCup coffee sleeve. I love coffee sleeve art, and I've had this one in my stash waiting for a project to come along. It features artwork by Elliott Routledge, from the Voices for the Rainforest series. The quote on my layout is from the same artist.
