Crafty Solutions for Using Waste Paint, Inks & Sprays

Hi guys, a couple of days ago I posted a video showing how to recycle all the product that gets wasted during crafting.
 I think nearly all crafters will do this automatically in their own way - we're not called 'creative', or 'crafty' for nothing after all lol 
Here's how I capture mine, and then what I do with it. Hope you enjoy:

  2. That's great! Instead of using paper towels to wipe up stuff (I see that all of the time on blogs), I use a piece of muslin which after many uses it becomes a beautiful piece of cloth to make into journal covers, bags etc. Do love this idea and will try it soon. Thanks.

  7. I really love this Jennibellie! It's so creative and fun - and nothing like making you feel virtuous at the same time! Defo something to try.

  8. I love this! I tend to grab little pieces from my "scraps" box to pick up any left over paint.. but i like the idea of using a big sheet as a craft mat! gives you a lot more options :) And it looks great as gift wrap :)

  9. I watched this last night and loved it! So many great ideas. I always line my art table with brown craft paper to catch all the excess & waste. But, I love the idea of using paper... a little heavier. So inspiring you are little Ms. Fabulous! ;) xxoo

  11. When the children were little I used to buy rolls of wallpaper lining and just cut off what they needed to draw and paint on, worked out very cheap. I think it would work well copying your idea. Thank you I feel inspired ;)

  13. I'm right with you on being frugal, Jen! My students are jokingly terrified of throwing out ANYthing in class! LOL
