Tiffany Johnson Creative #100dayartplay Challenge - Day 24

Today is Day 24 of the Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay challenge.  The prompt for this week is "household items".

I started with a piece of cardboard I rescued from the recycling box.  Stripping some of the surface away to reveal the texture of the corrugation.

I painted the surface of the cardboard using two shades of Paperartsy Acrylic Chalk Paint, using "Slimed" a green shade and then "Southern Skies" a deep blue colour.

Once the surface was dry, I added extra dimension by using Ranger "Matte Distress Texture Paste" through the Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous stencil called "Shifter Layering Stencil - THS127".

While the paste was drying, I folded a piece of kitchen roll (my household item) and roughly cut circles into the paper towel.  I then stuck these on to the surface using wet glue.  Some of the discs were single layers and some double.

I splattered yellow and blue paint across the surface using Posca Pens.  Then mounted the piece on to dark blue card.  Finally, adding a Tim Holtz "Idea-ology Big Chat" word sticker to the surface.
