  • Submit to the Contest folder
  • One submission per deviant
  • In your artist comment box please write that your entry "was created for the recycling and reusing contest at projecteducate".
  • Include a description of the recycled materials you used for the transformation

PRIZES

OMG, OMG, OMG, thank you! la-hyperwave I think I've fainted.  I've been close to throwing everything of that project through the windor, I've cut my finger and went mad for like ten times over it, so I'm sooo happy it has won :) Thank you! :squee:

All entries were great, I was sure the amonite pendat from 3rd place will win :)

If I can get myself in gear I have something really fun I need to finish.. I've just been a wee bit obsessed with using up some strips of mini hexagons I was planning to use as a border for something and then changed my mind and well... me using up scraps of fabrics for something is normal so not really a re-cycling project ;-)
