Mixed Media Art---Door Hanger

Saturday, 19 September 2015

Hi friends,

Sharing an upcycled project today, So, I had this piece of corrugated cardboard ( from a cheese box) lying in my stash since quite a while and yesterday, I decided to put it to some good use. So, I decided to make a pretty door hanger out of it.  This is what I made :--

So, it started with just an unplanned experimental activity on a boring afternoon , just playing around with some gesso, fireworks sprays and texture paste over this rectangular piece of corrugated cardboard and it turned out to be something I really liked after the background was made. Then I was left wondering how and what embellishments to add to this. Now this is where I usually falter and being a CAS lover, find this step a little brain-numbing :P
 After figuring out what mulberry flowers would look good against that background and their best possible arrangement, I could slowly sense the project coming together all by itself !! I think that's the beauty of art, you may not necessarily begin with a chalked-out plan in your mind, but as you get involved in the making process, ideas keep coming easily and effortlessly. :)

I love that quote. Do you? :)

Thanks so much for stopping by. And have a very creative weekend!
