Don't we love our stash? Let's use some of the stuff we've been accumulating, and make room for newer, fresher materials. For this swap hosted by Laurie, dig out those new or rarely used, forgotten or neglected items and make something with them!
Collage some bits you've been hoarding. Do some stamping with those new stamps you never got around to using. Paint with those paints you got for the holidays but haven't opened yet. Doodle with those pens or pencils you just had to have which are now languishing in your drawer.
Any theme, any technique (except digital), any materials are welcome -
the more the better.
For ease of mailing, however, don't attach bulky embellishments.
In these two examples, the one with the red tape consists of old collage bits, never-used paint markers, never-used stamps, never-used Distress crayon, rarely used ink pad, old washi tapes, and a very old word sticker. The one with the B&W tape consists of never-used paints, never-used stamps, new washi tape, forgotten pens, and a very old word sticker.
THEME: Stash Buster MIXED MEDIA: paint, pens, pencils, tape, markers, stamps, crayons, stickers, etc. TECHNIQUE: Use materials you have never, or rarely, used NO DIGITAL PLEASE SIZE PARAMETERS: Post Card 6" x 4+1/4" maximum
