Crafting is in my blood! Just not in my geneology.

Inspired by my friend, Mitch, who is on craftster somewhere...

(He made the one on the left, and I the one on the right)
He said to me, "Laura, art is what you want it to be."  And then I fell in love with it
Cardboard art is easy, and requires little talent.  Just spraypaint, stencils, and whatever you want to use.

Partners could give each other some colors, themes, or concepts to work with, then after a month, we mail off our pieces!  Its so easy to make cardboard art, even I can do it!
The recommended size is a manila envelope, but some of the bases of the pieces may not fit in that.  Hey, we're crafters, ingenuity is what we're all about, right?
Suggested bases:
              Cardboard, old book covers, old vinyl records or CDs, brown paper bags, t shirts stretched over cardboard or a frame, fabric not stretched at all.
Pretty much just stuff no one wants that would be thrown away

You can too!

So is anyone up for the challenge?

Just make it the size of a big manila envelope.
That would be a pretty standard size

I'm interested.
I wonder what you would think about using old records or other objects as the canvas...

That is an amazing idea!  Why didnt i think of that!
The reason I said Cardboard is coz its cheap and pretty much everywhere.
Pretty much anything that no one wants could be a canvas.

Dude, don't complain!  I say lets give it a week or so.
Also, if no one is willing to organize, then I will.  But I've never organized, so Id like to co organize if possible.
