Once a month, Gauche Alchemy has a theme day where the design team plays with the same theme or supplies to show all the various ways they can be used. This month we played with Ouchless Cardboard, one of my favorite materials to make all sorts of textural things with.
But, of course, me being me, I went with cutting it up and putting it back together all funky to make a canvas - something i've been wanting to do for months now but never really had the motivation until now. And I've been obsessively painting these days since i splurged and bought a wide variety of different painting mediums and gels. I decided to experiment with the two together - to see what kind of texture the paint and the corrugation could create. Hence my "Be" wall piece:
The alpha letters are also corrugated cardboard from Joann's. There's also screen from the hardware store i put paint on.
The acrylic paint is mixed with Liquitex String Gel which gives it a bit of a honey-like consistancy and makes it super glossy.
