Creative Expressions Art Nights Upcycling Workshops

Wednesday evening was Creative Expressions Art Nights with my crafty peep Christie. She asked me to present an upcycling project for one of the art nights and this week was my night! First was gathering my usual craft material to upcycle - cereal boxes. We were going to create desk organizers and gift boxes using cereal boxes.

Here's my stash...



And my sample project - a funsie desk organizer using cupcake paper, silver duck tape and cut out letters...



Here's Christie working on her project...



We had four participants and we got down to getting crafty pretty fast!



Creative Expressions Art Nights are a free inclusive event open to all artistic skill levels, ages and demographics, however event participants must identify as having either a mental health and/or addictions issue.



A decoupage action shot - layers of tissue paper and Mod Podge...



This lady was going for it - this cereal box got pretty blinged out in the end!



Here's a close up of her upcycled cereal box - loads of colour and funky details!



Yay for happy upcyclers! What a FAB evening!



I'm waiting to get the details but Christie is giving a workshop through Vancouver Trade School soon - hoping I can make it!
