This is a little project I made in the early weeks after our move. I can never resist the formed paper packaging materials, so when I noticed this one in the recycle pile I snagged it. I quickly realized that I would like it better with a frame. This one is made from a couple layers of cardboard and covered with a few layers of paper. I painted it, first with the primer I was using in the kitchen, and then with acrylics. The size is about 8" wide x 14" high.
I set it aside on the counter in my studio and as has happened so often, it started communicating with its neighbor!
The red piece on the right is a fabric chenille that I made earlier this year. I was disappointed with the project for a couple of reasons, but I realized that I would like it a lot better if I could add a shadow box style frame, and that the texture of the fabric chenille would be an interesting way to create a center. Anyway, I've whipped up a few more frames and experimented with some 6 inch square chenille centers. The only finished piece so far is pictured below.
I would like to spend some time developing this idea, so maybe by next week.....
