Cherry Blossoms on Cardboard 'Canvas'

What's not to love about turning recycling into art? Yesterday, while participating in Paint Party Friday, and visiting Jean Zoss' lovely blog Bluebirds Living in the Meadow, I learned about Alma Stoller's tutorial on how to make a cardboard canvas. I'd been stockpiling chipboard for several months, with no particular plan, so I had everything I needed to get started right away.

The cherry blossoms are gorgeous looking out my window right now, even in the pouring rain and I love the words from John Koethe's beautiful poem, "The Late Wisconsin Spring".


  1. beautiful!! i love your spring blossoms!! thank you for the mention too! :) jean

  2. Beautiful delicate blossoms!!! Lovely work! :0)

  3. Awe-inspiring, your piece makes me want to take a long walk among the spring blossoms. We are just having the coldest spring, on this side of the mountains. Maybe in a week or two I can take a sweet walk along an orchard road. Your new fan and follower, Connie :)
    Come on over for a visit, my welcome mat is always out.
    Maybe you'll even decide to follow my blog.

  4. Thanks for sharing about the tutorial. Found other interesting links on Alma's blog too. Your cardboard canvas flowers are beautiful! Now how is one supposed to attach a hanger on that? :^) Patsy from

  5. White and light green are just the perfect spring colours, and your cherry blossoms are beautiful. I have two cherry tree branches in a vase on my window sill, and they just make me so happy everytime I see them.
