Recycle with Lynn Miller! :)



My guest today is the lovely Lynn Miller of Millers Ink. Lynn's designs are truly timeless. Her work really epitomizes classic vintage elegance with the use of kraft as her signature. I love that Lynn is big on using scraps and recycling with found items around her home. Today she shares how she restores an old wreath without spending a single cent! She's also hosting an awesome challenge with a fabulous prize for the winner! :)

Let's have a look at her beautiful gallery! :)




 
hi, I’m lynn miller, and I’m from avon, indiana, (just outside of indianapolis),
where i  live with my husband and son in a very small, but cozy home, (which is currently being remodeled).
I love papercrafts, shabby decorating, junking for old stuff. 
today, I thought I’d share my latest recycled project .  I used
my papercraft scraps to update a tired, old wreath.  here it is before.



first, I stripped off the burgundy flowers, jade green filler and pink ribbon,and then, added
some scraps of my seam binding, lace bits, a piece of tulle, and finished it off with 4 large cream flowers-(that I plucked from an old topiary).

here is the “after” wreath, hanging in it’s new spot, in my entryway.  I love that I was able to do this without spending money, and my scrap pile went down.

so, now, it’s your turn—just make a card, page, or 3-d project with something recycled on it and you mightwill win a papertrey ink’s limited editioniconic images” stamp set!
