journal challenge day 155
i really enjoy cardboard as a medium to paint on. i like the texture. but i also love that i can turn something ordinary into a piece of art. i love finding ordinary objects and making it into something beautiful. isn’t that what life is all about!!! my husband once collected boxes so they are always in no shortage in my house. i love the raw look. it makes a simple message even more simple and beautiful. i love the look of stitching on cardboard. the stitching provides another element of texture. stitching + cardboard = bliss. at least for me. i usually string a whole bunch of pieces of cardboard into a book, but i think that i might offer them for sale for just a bit. so if you want to purchase an original (journal page) on cardboard, just send me a line. i know it’s not conventional, but that is what i love about it. i mean who has an original painting on a piece of cardboard?
