Colourful Cardboard Cities

A little different from yesterdays "city" post..............I've never visited a city like this!
As we all do a little clearing out, throwing away the boxes from presents and Christmas decorations - maybe we should spend some time with all this cardboard and take a leaf from the art work of Anna Seranno from Cartonlandia. She makes "towns" from cardboard boxes - and paints them all so colorfully. I just love the look of these.

Her towns are up to 5 foot tall! They include people, decks, numbers on each house - great details and just those happy colors! So look kindly on those cardboard boxes - they have real potential!

That's really clever. All our cardboard gets donated to my son's class for the art table and they do make some amazing things!
