Altered Element DT Recycle


This is my 1st DT post for the Altered Element, so I wanted to make it special. The title we were given was 'RECYCLE' as I am sure you do to. I think pretty much every crafter recycles to some degree. We save packaging and bits of ribbon off clothes. Christmas is a great time to recycle card and paper and even the crackers have gifts for the avid crafter lol.


In this part of the configuration, there are small watch parts & faces all available at Altered Element  (AE) Which I am so sad to say is closing down. However, they have amazing discounts UP TO 35% so make sure you get round there and stock up or buy some crafter the perfect gift! The configuration boxes went in a flash, I have looked to day and they have gone. But there is so much more. 


I have used AE stamps from ECO which is recycled rubber for stamps and they also have the other Eco items. I have used every thing form stamps to bottle tops to even a key hole cover (porcelain) there is so much around the house that can be useful. I am sure as a crafter we look at things and look at all the alternatives. I have even saved a couple of tic tac boxes which I have plans for!  I'm so bad even hubby does it! lol, before anything goes in the bin we think! what could I/Dawn do with this. Hubby has even given me a plasic tub that his shaving foam was in. It looks like a flying saucer I have no idea what I will make with it but I will think of something! ;0)


And Sculpey is also available at AE can be used for any thing. Here I used it to make an Eiffel tower, hearts and cherubs. I also used Friendly plastic as well as sculpy for the moulds,  all available at the Altered Element very effective and the possibilities are really endless. So stock up on the things you just have to have while this fantastic sale is on! There are lots more details of items I used and how I made the corset out of Sculpey Clay Here I hope you liked this little offering, I know how you all love to create. If you make some thing with one of these Configuration boxes of Tim's I really want to see what you come up with. Love Dawn xx

It's fabulous Dawn - so much to look at! I spotted some Green Shield Stamps - that takes me back (showing my age - lol). I have my hubby well trained in that department too - he always gives me his old packaging!

It is a shame the AE is closing down, they stock all those little bits and pieces we crafters need!

Dawn, your Configuration box is AWESOME! You most definitely made your first AE post special-- this is a masterpiece! Your Sculpey pieces are amazing, and the entire piece is sweet and fascinating and wonderful!

You'd asked where I found the pieces I used in my Configurations piece, and really, they're things I've picked up here and there over time. Some are vintage, some are cheap-o discount craft shop finds. But if there's something specific you want, let me know and I'll see if I can find a source for you. :)

Meanwhile, enjoy knowing you've made something absolutely brilliant! Happy holidays, sweetie!
