A Day at Bruno's Art and Sculpture Park

Here is my Saturday night page from Tracy's (my2angels) class at Kats 2011 retreat, where we used a pizza box to create a woodgrain effect, to match the prima papers (using the opposite side of the pattern paper.....take a look next time on the opposite side of your double sided pp as there sometimes can be a subtle pattern which is great to use instead of cardstock as your base).

A Day at Bruno's Art and Sculpture Park

Cut very thin strips of the pizza box (around 2mm) and turn on its side then attach in strips with double sided tape to create the woodgrain effect, then adding my2angel leaf charms with green bakers twine.
We also added a few lizard charms eating their way through the pattern paper
and the title 'PARK' is Scrapware Correboard Letters.
 Scrapware Trees covered with Peeled Paint Crackle Paint and of course my2angels tree and snail charms.

 You can create the knots in the woodgrain by rolling strips of pizza box and then working the wood strips around the knots. I loved how this turned out but there was a lot of cutting out of the pizza box strips :) but well worth the end result :)
