SCRAP-inspired project – Take 1

In Portland, we have a wonderful resource called SCRAP Creative Reuse Center.  They accept donations of a wide variety of things and encourage the community to use them in creative ways.  Yesterday I took a trip there with visions of potential projects in my head.  I made a beeline to the home decorator sample fabric books and found two with lots of beautiful patterns and colors.  Next, off to the scrap wood.  I found 2 sample cabinet doors that you typically find in home decorating stores.  I thought they would be a wonderful backdrop for some hanging wall art.  After paying $7 for my finds, I was off to get started on my projects.   Here is the first of two projects.
