#PinkCycled Charity Challenge

If you follow my social media you’ll know that I’ve been working on a project called #PinkCycled lately. Well this is what it’s all about.22555251_1658979517488297_6945870442047465538_n.jpg

During October’s Breast Cancer awareness week my upcycling twin Lynne Lambourne of Love Nellie launched a joint project with the Pink Ribbon Foundation (Reg. Charity No. 1080839) and Preloved to raise awareness and money for breast cancer. A cause very close to her heart as her dad has survived breast cancer twice so she was massively keen to help, read here story here.

The call was put out to creatives and upcyclers to upcycle something with a pink twist, sell on Preloved and all the money raised would go straight to Lynne’s Just Giving page for the Pink Ribbon Foundation.

My Project


Using a marbling technique I’d tried before using oil-based paint for a Rust-Oleum project (see it here) I upcycled some old tiles into coasters. These are for sale at £7 for two on Preloved.  Buy them here.

These are the other items created by some highly talented people! The links to buy them are included too to make it easy for you join in.
