It's no secret that I like to work with cardboard....

But I've never used it for direct painting until today. 

 I applied several layers of paint, letting each layer dry completely.

Here I painted wet on wet. I used a palette knife and the texture of the cardboard came through, creating a nice effect.

Simplicity is the removal of the useless and the unnecessary--source unknown


  1. I was just looking at some cardboard and thinking, I might try it!! x

  2. last photo looks like a vintage chenille spread. like the texture.

  3. I like stitching into cardboard. The ridges are so appealing
