Painting on up-cycled packaging, all finished after lots of layers!
My husband recently ordered a white board and when it arrived I eagerly claimed the packaging. A large, reinforced piece of corrugated cardboard was going to be my next challenge! First lots of primer!
A layer of pale grey as well to get me started and then my automatic drawing!
A good start but I know I knew a good few layers of paint would be needed to compensate for the texture of the cardboard.
I like it but yet more layers are needed 🙂
I am so pleased with my new product, recycled notebook or sketch book covers.These have been re-cycled from the very fashionable and popular PVC advertising signs. Obviously these awful things are not biodegradable and so will sit in landfill for ever so I have come up with a practical use for them instead of throwing them away.
I hand paint the the lengths of PVC and then sew them into shape. Then this turns into what I think are very desirable book covers with pencil loops on the front 🙂 Keep a look out as these will be soon available on my Etsy shop
I recently up-cycled this lampshade for our living room and shared with my friends and followers on Facebook.It has resulted in me getting a commission for a Lampshade of a specified design which I realised just in time that I’d better not say any more in case they read this post!!! 😛
I’m enjoying getting ready for my Christmas open studio this Saturday. Here are some Christmas textiles in the making. These are made from up-cycled fabrics, hand dyed and block printed. 🙂
I just made these super dragonfly print cards and wanted to share them with you.I had made the blue background on my Gelli plate and decided to block print on top of it with the same dragonfly block I already used and while the ink was still wet added a little sprinkle of glitter! Cut to size and mounted on recycled board with a little addition with my John Bull printing set and they’re good to go! 🙂
I love drawing! Here’s my frog in my favourite colour way. I am pleased with this so it shall stay. He’s now available as a A4 digital print with a mount ready to frameand a recycled greetings card, direct from my studio or from my Etsy shopThe original drawing is also available 🙂
