    Step 1

    I started bu tearing off the top layer of a piece of cardboard. I believe it was an 11 X 11 piece.

    Step 2

    Next I coated the cardboard with 2 coats of white gesso, then I gut the cardboard sheet into random rectangle pieces.

    Step 3

    After all the pieces were cut I chooses a mix of coordinating Art Anthology Velvets to color my random pieces.

    Step 4

    I finished all the edges off with a bit of grungy sparkle using a bit of Black Leather Jacket
