Upcycled Pizza Box into Mixed Media Canvas

Hello friends ! Becoz my sons’ summer holidays as well as the holy month of Ramadhan begins by the end of this month, my posts might be far and few in between from now on.

Today I am sharing with you a mixed media project. I love mixed media (mm) becoz it allows me to experiment without any inhibitions and rules ! I explore with colors, textures and patterns and somehow, it just ties in together.

I, rarely work on a canvas for any of my mm projects ~ being an eco-friendly person, there is always, some effort placed on upcycling or repurposing objects (which can be). Here I have upcycled a pizza box for the mm canvas. I use the back of a pizza box and I love the texture it gives. Two coats of gesso to begin with, and the texture is just so good.

Techniques used are :-

  • Sponging acrylics
  • Decoupage
  • Paper piecing
  • Recycled Pizza box

The quote is dear to my heart. Coz any place in the world is acceptable and bearable, just so long as I am with my husband.  ‘He’ is the best gift Allah swt blessed me with.

I hope you like this attempt.

  1. That is so beautiful!! I just can’t believe it is a pizza box. Just goes to show that you can make something beautiful out of someone else’s junk. What a gift you have. Thanks for sharing here!

  2. Beautiful, I’ve never seen such a lovely pizza box! What a great recycling project. The quote is lovely and the picture so cute and modern.

  3. Great protect. Love the all the colours and shapes. Your little houses look so cute! And using a pizza box for a canvas is such a good idea. Thank you for sharing with us at That Craft Place. Cheers, Aurora

  4. Hi Naush, you make the cutest things with recycling, love it!!! Thanks for stopping over at Oh My Heartsie Girl to share your blog.

    I am now following you on FB and Twitter. Hope to see you again, Karren

    • Oh wow !! Thank you following me on FB and twitter ! I’m so glad to have you as my creative friend !

    • Oh wow !! We have so much in common Mel ! Thank you very much for featuring me next week, hon. I really appreciate it 🙂

  8. Nice to meet you, I come from the Linky Party of Alex.
    I love paper crafting but it’s no so easy for me, I paint china and I love digital painting.
    Your recycled creation is very beautiful, I’d never thought about this.

    • Hi Norma !! OMG – your so talented !! I could never attempt painting china or digital painting !! Thank you very much for dropping by 🙂

    • Hi Christy. Thank you for visiting me and your lovely comment. Every project I create has to have some element of upcycling / repurposing / recycling !! I am rather eccentric in that sense. I almost feel a necessity to dress up something old or worn out ~ or give a coat of paint life to mundane objects !! But I find that very gratifying !! I told you ~ rather eccentric !!

  9. Naush you are absolutely brilliant. I cannot wait to do this with my kids this summer. Such a great idea. I would love it if you would share this fab post at our WIW linky party. I hope you can join us!


  10. This is a lovely piece of artwork Naush but I am afraid it’s not eligible for our How Does Your Garden Grow theme as like most challenges we do not accept backlinked entries at Allsorts (i.e those posted before the start date of the challenge).

Pure yumminess right there. 6. Jamie’s Thots spent a day exploring Farm Fresh at The Junk Ranch. If you love vintage, you’ve got to check out her adventure. 7.
