Using packaging materials on my mixed media canvas


Using-packaging-on-a-mixed-media-canvas

You know that I love to reuse packaging on my artwork. Can you spot the packaging materials I used on my mixed media canvas? *winks*


There's the wrapping tissue base for the canvas. The distressed patterned paper base was the backing for a pack of Prima tags (as seen on this canvas).


And the translucent ribbon came with a box of tea. :)


I finished with Maya Road spools, pearls and buttons.

I only guessed the tissue paper. My tea isn't fancy enough to come with ribbons. ;) Awesome job.
