Go Green and/or Recycle

Good morning! The girls over at Try it on Tuesday challenge blog have an awesome challenge for the next couple weeks .. Go Green and/or Recycle something!  

I decided to do both! I used an old iPhone that my son had that was broken and lots of green!!

I love recycling old computer parts for art bases, so why not an old iphone! First I found some bits and bobs in my stash... some are new, some are recycled as well...

Then after adhering them down to the iphone using gel medium, I painted it all with black gesso...

Next step was to use some green ink sprays and spray all over.

Final step was to use a selection of metal waxes to highlight the areas that are raised. (forgot to photograph this step!).

Just played until I was happy with the finished product...

I hope you can Go Green and Recycle this week!

Thanks for taking a peek!
