How to: Upcycle Cardboard into Art - Creative Team Thursday with Denise Alloca



Creating from the outside in!  In today's Design Team Post I will be creating the start of a book, from the outside then tackling the inside pages!  


Grab some cardboard, find your stash and play along!  

The cover is first, then to be continued….the pages.  For the cover I used Jessica’s Namaste Stencil, and the Whimsy Crown Stamp.   




I hope you play along!  Here's my video tutorial to get you started: https://youtu.be/neFZnTjXebY

With a passion for art from an early age, Denise Alloca turned her interest to photography and later art education. Through her diverse exposure to various art forms, she found her way to mixed media art, where she currently showcases her work on her blog.  Denise has been a Design Team member for Donna Downey’s Artist Gang, creating instructional videos showcasing various mixed media techniques.  Denise's work has also been published in Art Journal Kickstarter, which offers advice and techniques for art journaling enthusiasts.



Thanks for this great tutorial Denise!
