Left of Center Creative Challenges – Recycle/Upcycle with Oddball Art Co.

It’s time for another exciting challenge at Left of Center. This week we are sponsored by Oddball Art Co. and I have used the gorgeous Sunni #175 which you can find here.




I have used some recycled materials for my project to fit our theme of Recycle / Upcycle:

Oddball Art Co Sunni #175

I started with a wood block and decoupage an old book page to the front. Then I used white gesso around the edge of the wood, blending over the edges of the page. Once dry I added some corrugated card packing to the top and bottom edges and painted with silver Dazzling Metallics paint.

The image is coloured with Promarkers and glued over the book page with Mod Podge.

When that was dry I used black and red oxide Antiquing creams over the corrugated card and edges of the wood, wiping away to create the weathered effect. I finished with some wire spirals (glued into the corrugations, some Cosmo Cricket Tiny Text stickers and a resin flower.


We would love to see you join in our challenge this week – if you don’t like the theme then you can go Left of Center (dark, emo, gothic, steampunk, risque, etc)
