Who says paintings need to be on canvas? Why not get creative and recycle things you already have on hand like cardboard cereal or food boxes. Painting on boxes is actually a great way to make art on a budget, create something that is light weight and easy to display.

1. I started with a few food boxes in different sizes. 2. Next I primed them with house paint. 3. Once the white paint was dry I layered on some messy swipes of colorful paint.

4. Once the paint was dry I used a Sharpie to draw on the surface 5. I repeated my drawings to create pattern. 6. I added little details with white pen.
