Renew & Reuse from Brenda

I am amazed at all the items that our friends and followers have used to create something new, and this one is no exception. Brenda took a large piece of cardboard and created a wonderful piece of art with it. She has been inspired by watching some of the Donna Downey Videos and I think she really did a great job. I would have never guessed that this was cardboard in the beginning !!!

Here in her own words is what she did to create this masterpiece!!!

I used Claudine Hellmuth’s Studio paints by Ranger and first covered the cardboard in 2 coats of gesso and then painted a simple design. While the design was still a little wet, I took a spray bottle and sprayed it to help some of it drip and run. Then, with more paint and water, I made the paints drip all over the cardboard. After all was dry, I took black paint and painted on the word “Inspire.”

What do you see when you see a chunk of cardboard, an empty bottle, an empty Velveeta box???
Join us in this fun challenge and let us see what it is that you take from trash to treasure !!!
Have a great Hump day, and keep your eyes open for the possibility of anything !
