Canvases that cost NOTHING by ~Vintage Nina~

Can you guess what this canvas is??? It cost me nothing and I am helping the Universe by recycling......I LOVE recycling!!!

 This is with gesso on the "MYSTERY CANVAS" and
a face I sketched out.
 I LOVE a thick side on a canvas, and this one has it!!! So did you guess what the canvas is made of???
IT is boxes, any kind of box. I just did the front of the "Sweet N Low" box with brown bag paper so you could see the effect below. 

I am LOVING this new idea of mine, and when I am all done I will show you what I am doing with all of my paintings! Save a box, and give it a is SO MUCH FUN!!!

    Love your roses I saw under here....and your necklace...oh no...your daughter's :)
