Happy Earth Day!!

Welcome to Create it Green’s Earth Day Blog Hop!! Thanks so much for joining us!

If you just happened by this blog and didn't realize a blog hop was taking place, please go back to http://createitgreen.blogspot.com and start the hop. You won't want to miss all the Earth Day Inspiration or the amazing prizes from our generous sponsors! Make sure you leave a comment on each blog on the hop since winners will be drawn from the comments!!

My projects use paper from the Green Field Paper Company. It is 100% recycled paper that contains junk mail. The paper is lovely, as you can see bits of words, pictures and colors from the junk mail. When you hold it up to the light, you see a lot more junk mail embedded in the paper.


My first project is an Art Journal inspired by the Green Field Paper Company's use of junk mail. I gathered up envelopes and other bits of paper and packaging, used the recycled paper for covers and put it together with binder rings. The flowers and bird on the cover are punched from junk mail.


My second project is a layout, using the recycled paper as my background. I love the texture and weight of this paper!
Check out their papers!! http://www.greenfieldpaper.com


This blog hop will run from today, April 22nd until Sunday, April 26th, midnight PST. We will be drawing for winners on April 27.
Follow along in our blog hop! Your next stop is http://papercraftpleasures.blogspot.com
