Following on from my gluing scrap strips to junk cardboard to make tags I have been painting and stencilling on more trash cardboard and packaging.
Surface design on the cardboard pieces
Starting with a couple of acrylic paint colours from a current painting, I painted the surface of the cards which were roughly cut to journalling card size.
Using a wedge makeup sponge, stencilling came next in contrasting colours to the backgrounds.
Scribbling and doodling with paint pens and permanent markers enhanced the surface even more.
The backs have lined paper pasted on for journalling spaces.
Journalling card sentiments
Lastly, I glued words cut from a mail order catalogue to form some motivational sentiments on each card.
Unique free journalling cards
A great way to use trash cardboard and leftover paint from your palette.
