So... what do you do when you fancy making a triptych but don't have a suitable substrate? Make your own!
This little number was made from a cardboard box. I decided how big I wanted the middle panel to be, based upon the size of the main figure image, then cut two pieces this size from a bit of old box. One of those pieces was cut in half, leaving me with 3 bits....
I joined the pieces together with sticky backed canvas. Nice and sturdy, but flexible. Make sure you leave a gap between the 2 bits of card, as this is how a nice 'hinge' is created.
Stick a bit of canvas on both sides..
Once you've done both sides, the triptych shape is revealed..
Now it can be covered with either copy paper or old book pages...
And can then be decorated!
I used a mixture of Finnabair stamps, the main image figure:
And some circles..
And some butterflies!
Everything was painted with Dina Wakely paint, before grunging the designs up a little. I used black water soluble pencil, then blurred the lines with a waterbrush to create dark shadows.
Have a great day!
