This is the Part Where You Find Out Who You Are

One of the classes I took last year had us make a cardboard "canvas" from cereal boxes. To be honest I had little faith in them so I let them 'hang out' in my craft area and suffer some injustices before I started decorating them. Turns out that they are TOUGH and I really like the irregular nature of a hand-formed oval. What do you think?

Here's the back so you can see how I did it:

I made a little series of these and will be sharing more tomorrow.

I think it looks great. It doesn't look at all mis-formed (the oval) to me. I think the bright colored lady really perks up the item.

Absolutely gorgeous - just love it. The black, the colour, the quote... Yum!

We love using recycled food containers to craft with! All they need is a few layers of old book pages and they are super sturdy.

I love the look of the black with the colorful silhouette. Great job!
