Altered Medium Twinchie

Hope everyone is having a nice weekend. I decided to play. I bought some corrugated cardboard on clearance as I thought it would be fun to play with. It has been sitting for a few weeks now in a drawer and I decided it was time to see what I could do with it. I love how it turned out and will definitely be using this technique for panels on cards. :-) Of course it won't turn out exactly the same next time.
I started by randomly applying strips of paper to the corrugated cardboard. Then I randomly applied gesso in places. After the gesso was pretty much dry I took a stencil and applied paint. I would use one color with the stencil and then move the stencil and do another color. I wasn't trying to stencil the actual pattern. After the paint was dry I used a couple of  green markers with my airbrush. I love the result I got

For my flowers I took wooden pieces by Calico Studio and airbrushed them. Then I glued a gem in the center. For my stems I used a chenille stem which I also airbrushed since it was originally white, 

As I said in my last post the eBrush twinchie challenge ends Sunday. It was fun to see what I could do with such a small size and to try new things. Who knew that ordinary corrugated cardboard could turn out so pretty.

Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!


  1. The colour you used on your cardboard is awesome. Cut idea to decorate with pipe cleaners and flowers.

  2. Well it is certainly a different look from just plain old cardboard. Very pretty.
