Paint on old CD

I saw Buddha9s post: and thought that was a great idea to try in my own way. This is the result so far. The first one is Solberga i Vagnhärad Solberga is Swedish and means sunny hill.

Trosa church in cardboard

   I've built a church! Oh well, at least a little church. I used cardboard, that I otherwise should have thrown away. With a little colors on the cardboard I made it look like a little building.

Trosa harbor in cardboard

      Another cardboard building. This time the buildings in Trosa harbor. It's fun building things in cardboard. You learn how the pieces match together and you lern by doing misstakes. I use cardboard that otherwise would have gone to recycling, so if I cut a piece the wrong way it isn't the end of… Continue reading Trosa harbor in cardboard

Reuse art – Jesushuset Trosa

Ta en kartongbit eller något annat du har till hands, ta fram akvarellfärgerna eller vad du har i färgväg, välj ett favoritmotiv och sätt igång. Svårare behöver vi inte göra det för oss. Den här kartongbiten gjorde jag som en liten gåva. Jag valde att måla i skissartade penseldrag och nästan låta det se slarvigt… Continue reading Reuse art – Jesushuset Trosa

Vindstilla – reuse art

Jag fick ett tips om att pröva måla på t ex kartong. Reuse art handlar helt enkelt om att måla på sådant som annars skulle gått till återvinning eller soporna. Kartongen ger en randstruktur i botten och med akvarellfärger, som i det här testet, går det att använda ytterst få färger och ändå få fram… Continue reading Vindstilla – reuse art
