More and more these days, I am enjoying the idea of found materials to use in my artwork. My beautiful friend Annette brought me a fabulous flower arrangement to cheer me up after my recent surgery. Because the arrangement needed to be transported in her car, it came in a plain brown box. After a while, I dismantled the box, which ended up being a few 6-inch square panels of corrugated cardboard. That turned into a little art project, which I want to share with you. Materials used include: Making Memories acrylic paint, gesso, Golden fluid acrylic paint, Inka Gold, and Graphics 45 papers. Embellishments are sprockets from the Tim Holtz collection.I hope you like them.
I love these Jessica! Who would know they started with a paper box around pretty flowers? Love, Cherri
These look like the figures and ephemera are lying flat on the corrigated background. How did you get them that way? I would have thought it would look bumpy:-)
I pulled some of the cardboard off the corrugated board to show the ribs and left some on to make flat spaces for adhering ephemera.
