Well have I got something to show you today.
The other day I wanted a square canvas to do one of my mixed media girls on so I cut the 5x7 canvas board to make it 5x5. I had a 2x7 piece left over and was about to toss it when my hand stopped at the garbage bag. I then put the piece down thinking what can I do with this???..... hmm.
Well I cut that piece to make 2 more mini canvases of 2x2 with just a small piece left to throw out.
And here is what I did with those small canvases, they are so much fun to make. I did layers and layers of painting using bright colours, sequin waste for a stencil, bubble wrap as a stamp, gesso and some have a few pieces of paper that I first collages then painted over for added texture. A couple canvases I put crumpled tissue paper that I got from a gift at Christmas and before you know it it was transformed into a background.
I made wings using Webster Dictionary pages, wire and Glossy accents and various other elements hanging around. I had some chipboard Maya Road houses that I have had forever, some ARTCHIX eco shaped cats and this is what happens when you get a mess in front of you.
I added a niece piece of scrapbook paper on the back then added a square magnet (dollar store buy, the photo magnetic sheets) and added my name and Studio name. What a nice little RAK to send to someone or add to a trade for a just because. No waste in this house....I found some more canvas boards and cut them up using my craft knife, cutting mat and my handy dandy see through ruler. I have some more ideas lined up, can't wait to get at them....
Thanks for dropping by and take care all.
