Junk Christmas Decorations 2014

Adventures in Junking was created in February 2015, but I had been repurposing/upcycling material well before that. Before I post this year’s Christmas creations I’ll share some work from last Christmas, A neighbour put a bundle of vertical blinds at the curb the evening before garbage collection day and I salvaged several of the weights in the bottom of each blind. They were a bit too heavy to make into tree ornaments, so I made them into gift tags.  There were several steps. Each tag was gessoed and painted before I decoupaged vintage messages or images. (from the Graphics Fairy and other vintage clip art sites. Many of those were tea stained before being decoupaged onto the painted tags.

  For the finishing touches I used a variety of fabric scrap, old keys buttons and costume jewellery.
