Recycle, Re-Purpose, Re-Invent is having another great challenge this week and the theme is Going Postal. I had lots of fun with this challenge.
For my desk I used a wooden box from a laboratory I found at a garage sale years ago and filled it with articles that you would find on a desk.
For the background and the desk's blotter I used on of CS Designs digital papers called How Do I Love Thee. I edged the paper with Distress Inks to age it. To add some more interest I added glasses, keys, straight nib pen.
For the background I also used a few of CS Designs digital postal stamps that I coloured with Copic Markers, layered, cut out and arranged on the back of the desk. I rubbed on Distress Ink on the Avon bottle to give it an antique look.
My picture holder in the desk is a candle holder. I cut out one of the butterflies from one of the postal stamps and added it to the picture on the desk. I then added an old postcard, cord, and a letter to the desk.
I had lots of fun with this design. I hope you will join this interesting challenge this week. Hop over to our challenge blog, Recycle, Re-Purpose, Re-Invent and see the projects the other design team members have created to inspire you.
