Recycle/Repurpose

This week it’s once again my turn to issue a challenge to you all.  Since most of us like to alter things, I thought “repurpose/recycle” might be fun.  You might like to find something that started out life as one thing, and turn it into a piece of art.  Or, you might simply like to use something recycled in your piece – a piece of ribbon from a bunch of flowers, for example.  As usual, it’s all up to your imaginations, and I can’t wait to visit everyone to see where this challenge has taken them.  Don’t forget to tell us on your blogs what the reporposed or recycled element is.  Have fun!
