This is the next of my cardboard canvases. I don't know why but I really like to create on repurposed materials. This started out as a Cheerios box.
I gessoed both sides so that the substrate would not curl so much. I used blue, yellow and green glaze paint that I don't think is made anymore. I bought it when it was on clearance at least 8 years ago. I put down two layers and then stamped with a Michael's brand wood grain stamp using Sepia Archival ink. I added another coat of paint over the stamping so that the wood grain was just barely visible.
Next I stenciled the triangles using a piece of a BBQ grill that my friend, Theresa gave to me and spackling compound. I also used a Tim Holtz stencil and spacking compound to stencils some of the lines. Then I went back with green and cream craft paint and made more lines using Tim's stencil.
The flowers are a stencil I purchased at Michael's. I can't remember the brand. The petals are done with Basic paint and the leaves are craft paint. Accents were done with Montana and Liquitex paint pens.
