Recycled art for a swap

the necklace is made from an old priority envelope (tyvek) that was painted and heated I added a paper clay face
the keyring is made from a plastic walmart sack (the white) a dollar general sack (the yellow) and the red is a produce mesh
i cut into strips and braded rolled it into a coil and secrued with wire then glued a paper clay face onto it
next is an altered altoid tin
next are 3 different kinds of beads the first is just the common rolled paper bead next is a painted paper towel bead rolled over a knitting needle and allowed to dry I just reused the paper towels that i wiped my brushed off on from various projects
next is a plastic straw dipped in leftover embrossing powder and cooled

an altered journal made from an old priority mail box for the covers the paper is left over office paper and misc pieces of colored paper
I used a map to cover the front and back a piece of bubbled tyvek and a face which was printed on old tyvek paper
and a couple of pieces of scrap fabric for embellishment

Hi from Tyler,Tx. YOur doll is the neatest thing I have seen in a long time. Actually I thought all your work on this on your site is so inspired and great. I make all kinds of stuff but it just sits here cause I dont have anyone to share it with except for my ATC cards which I do trade. I didnt think anyone else thought so far "outside" the box as my husband and I do. Glad to see someone else does too. LOL Thanks for sharing and keep up your great work.
