Has anything every caught your eye that you thought would make a great embellishment on a page or card...but it has nothing to do with scrapbooking at all?
I've grabbed some tongue depressors at the doc's office, I thought they'd be great to put rub on's on. Here are a few other ideas...
-->Cardboard..it can add lots of dimension
-->Wall paper samples
-->Fabric from clothing you plan to toss out--> Sometimes the clothing isn't good enough to be passed on to anyone, but cut a small swatch out and I might just look amazing on a layout~
-->small twigs--> would this be great for outdoor layouts~
-->what about the outer piece to chipboard...after you've taken the chipboard and already used it. If the shape is square or round it would make a great frame~
--> fish hooks--> what a great way to accent a fishing layout~
-->I've even seen a relfector from a bicycle used on a layout
-->tin foil-I've seen someone use decorate scissors and cut out a piece of tin foil for instant bling~
The possibilities are endless...your house might be the perfect place to 'shop' for embellishments
Tell us what you've used that you might consider 'unusual'. We'd love to hear~
