Gothic Arch Challenge - Using Trash


I have had this little guy in my "stash" for some time. I found him in a magazine that would have been sent out to the recycling bin and stored him away. When I read the theme of this week's Gothic Arch Challenge, I knew that it was time to dig him out and make him into a packing tape transfer. He just brings back memories of standing outside while the snow was falling and opening up my mouth and sticking out my tongue to catch a snowflake or two. The large snowflake just above his head was used as a packing material in a Christmas gift so it too is recycled.
