More Eco Art Reclaimed and Recyled Painting surfaces
I have quite a collection of mat board "scraps" from a local framing/art gallery. They are in perfect condition and make a great painting surface. After finishing them I varnish them and they can be framed like a canvas with no glass. It is a fun way to use something that otherwise is not being used. I am doing them mostly in standard photo frame sizes. So if you wait for a sale on photo frames these become an extremely economical way to have some original art in your life or to give the gift of art to someone else. If you are an ACEO collector I do them too, a great way to add some eco friendly cards to your collection. Here is a sampling.
