September Guest Designer ~ Larisa Kuritsina

                                                                         Hello,

Today we have our JULY challenge winner Larisa Kuritsina as Guest Designer.

 She created a gorgeous project for our September challenge inspiration.

Over to Larisa


Hi! With you, the invited designer Larisa Kuritsina. 

Recently, we have faced a global problem related to the fact that our planet has become drowned in garbage. Mountains of garbage are piled up behind the cities, which turns the area into abandoned deserts. 
People, producing goods, products necessary for life, receive millions of tons of garbage, harmful compounds that pollute and destroy almost everything – soil, reservoirs, air, animals and man himself.

Today I used an old teapot. It could have gone to the trash, but I gave it a second life.
The background was set from cutting dies, paints, waxes. The butterfly is a symbol of the soul and immortality. Thanks for the invitation. Creative inspiration.







Thank you Larisa for your beautiful project. Hope to see you soon again in our challenge.

Hope you feel inspired. 
There is still some time left to enter our challenge. 
You can find the link by clicking on our Mood board on top right side bar.
Do participate and win fabulous prizes from our generous sponsors.
Thank you for visiting.

  DESIGN  TEAM  INSPIRATIONS   


My paintbrushes grew and the jar I kept them in became too small. This is the reason to make a new box for their storage. I used a metal box of tea. The others upcycled elements on it are an old paintbrush and nuts from a disassembled watch.


hello friends!
This September challenge inspired me enormously.
Used an old frame for my creation and also used an old audio cassette and vinyl record, and wood branches.
I wanted to depict nature with foliage that attempts to resist despite all the harm that humans do to it every day.




Hello MMA fans today I am here with a project an altered sweet box. I upcycled old sweet box using deco transfer sheets from little birdie and used my favorite lindys Magicals. This box can be used as a wall hanging or it can even be a perfect gift for someone you love. I loved this month's theme as it gave me opportunity to upcycle an old box in my home. It is a great way to save the environment. Hope you like the project I created and will participate in this fun theme.

'Creativity is making marvelous using discarded' this quote is my inspiration behind this project.. and what is best then upcycling objects that not only helps us keeping our beautiful earth clean..also allow us to create something 'Aw' worthy..
P. S upcycled Cookie box and paintbrush




Nature... Look deep into it and you will understand everything. From Spring's hopeful blooms and falls exquisite array of colours to winter's magic and summer's energy, each season abounds with natural beauty to explore and admire. Nature's beauty evokes visions of lush meadows full of brilliantly coloured flowers or dense forests with sky high trees. This month's moodboard evoked such feelings that made me recycle an old water filter candle to a tea light candle holder.


“I only feel angry when I see waste. When I see people throwing away things we could use.”
—Mother Teresa
In this challenge I have used an old ikea frame inspired by the mood board




Do you feel inspired!
