Cinema Reel

Recycle, Re-Purpose, Re-Invent     Anything Goes--September

The challenge for September at Recycle, Re-Purpose, Re-Invent is now up and running. You have all month to do just those 3 things with anything you might find laying around. Show us what your artistic minds and talent can make out of unused or unloved items. Be sure to tell us in your post what you've redone.
We are also welcoming a Guest Designer this month:  the very talented  Wendy. She's used some cool shells she picked up at the beach this summer. Pop over and check out her project.
This month I have chosen to Re-Invent a home decor item that was cute on it's own but just begged to be Re-Invented into something more striking. 
I have used some of the designs from the Performing Arts Collection at CS Designs. I just used 3 designs from that group. You'll have to click on the link and do a little window shopping at Chris's site. 
Even though my project is quite simple it reminds me of old movie days gone by. I'm a big fan of old movies so I can see this fitting into a home theater room for just a bit of nostalgia.
Be sure to click over and join in on the fun for the month of September and give my team mates some love on their blogs also. They have created some great projects.
Happy Creating--
Beverly G ♥

What a clever idea! This reel now looks amazing. Love the addition of the "ephemera" to create a stronger vintage feel and add interest and detail. Very cool!

I would love this for my son's room. His decor is vintage and movie themes. This is "Cinema-sational" Amazing work!
