My friend, Mo, over at Twinkle's Twaddle has been making a magazine holder out of cereal box. It sounded like fun so I decided to give it a try.
I used a large Cheerios Box taping the bottom half with masking tape to give it a little extra strength. I painted it with gesso and then buff paint. The flowers are painted with craft paints.
I made texture on the lower half heating the paint until it bubbled. The dots were made with a pencil eraser and the lines were made with the edge of a credit card.
This is the first side I've finished. I might do something different on the other side. This is a very different kind of project for me and I really enjoyed it.
