One Piece of Cardboard...

... five creative play dates.

I decided to recycle a piece of cardboard salvaged from a dismantled gift basket received at Christmas by re-purposing it. I cut it into five pieces, prepped each one with Gesso and designated them play canvasses for the week. The biggest piece is about 5 1/2"x7 1/2".

Five pieces, five days, one piece a day. It's all about play and showing up at the table - there's really no pressure to perform on salvaged cardboard.

Here's my first one, I haven't named her yet:

acrylics and paper on cardboard
approx. 4"x7 1/2"
