I know, I know, it sounds crazy.....Art from a Pizza Box??? But it's the perfect size, and it's free--well, minus the cost of the Pizza. Soon as I saw this nice sturdy box, I knew I could create something out of it.
I love square canvases, but if you've ever priced one, you know they can be pretty expensive. I been trying to not put so much pressure on myself and to just "try" different things, so I've started to use less expensive materials. If I don't have quite as much invested in it I feel like I have less expectations which usually produces a great piece of art.
I reinforced the pizza box with some tape and slapped on a coat of gesso. Then I got out my Mod Podge, paint, pencils and scrapbook papers and started to create.
And I was so excited I finally got a image transfer to work using Mod Podge! Amy had a great post on this not too long ago (click here).
Here it is....my final piece! I was really excited about how it turned out.
Okay, I know all you crafty people out there can think of all the other ways you could use a Pizza Box without getting this elaborate-wouldn't it look cute just painted with a monogram letter or a contemporary graphic.
