Paint Party Friday: Lil' Cardboard Collages


Happy PPF!

I hope this week found you with paint under your fingernails at some point . . . Mine were definitely encrusted with acrylics, gouache, glue, gloss medium, fiber paste, varnishes and (naturally) glitter for days. It was a case of peeling fingers for sure. You know, you've been there . . . .

But I digress: this week I was influenced by the lovely (darling & delightful) Mindy Lacefield after watching several of her You Tube videos. It was this one that really got me: watching her paint several little cardboard paintings at once. So excited I was, that I cut up the next box I got my hands on and went to work. My pieces took some different turns, but I'm so grateful to have had the impetuous to try something fun and new. Thank you Love Bug, for the beautiful inspiration!

Wanna see what I came up with? Okay:

4 little cardboard collages, all lined up in a row.
(Each one measures approximately 5.5 x 11)

They were first cut, pulled to reveal texture and then gessoed

Elements such as vintage playing cards and game pieces were added

Stencils served as the base, with some molding paste mixed with paint 
to create some raised areas

This one included a face - behind chicken wire that was adhered with E600 and beeswax

And here we have a little pocket that housed vintage tickets

They are hung with decorative wire and grommets

And finished off with decorative (and painted on) trim

That's it. Thanks for letting me share and thank you to Kristin and Eva for another opportunity to play with paint.


Have a fabulous weekend,
Kristin xo

Having been caught in a hail storm today (honestly, talk about all four seasons in one day) I am loving these bright summery, cheery colours. I know that video too and it always fascinates me seeing the spark that inspired something and then how totally different that something turns out. So fab and fun :-)

I love peeling fingers... I always think it would be the perfect time to go off and be a bank robber because then I wouldn't need gloves because i hate gloves and always drop things when I am wearing them... which would make me a bad robber... which is all a bit rambling but i think I may be drunk on all your glorious colour...xx

Oh Kristin....what a trip I was taken on! Your little cardboard beauties are delightfully colorful and offer so much to the eye!

Then, I went to see why Mindy's video inspired you and got easily caught up in how she makes whimsy and art supplies play so well together :)

Thank you!
