Challenge # 47 - This week I...

We all handle paper of some sort through our week. Receipts, invoices, lists, reports, mail, whatever it is you handle, we want you to use it. Take it and make it into something else. Get creative and use that paper product in a new way. Look at it differently. Alter it. Use it AS-IS. Make it into something "NEW".

(Rosemary had some family business to take care of and will post her project later today or this week or next week or month or not at all. If there is a Challenge from the past that inspires you, just post it on the current week and you are in. We welcome every entry any time. We really are flexible that way.)

Jana here: I work with spreadsheets everyday. I use them as tools to manage millions of dollars. So, naturally, I picked one out of the recycle bin to use in my project. I inked, crumpled, flattened, painted, sprayed, stamped, colored and, of course, I glued, before I added a few butterflies and quotes and called them done. You can click on the photos to see the details of the backgrounds a lot better. And you can visit my blog to get a better play-by-play on how it was done AND see all four in the set.

Now it's your turn to share your weeks experience.
