I wanted to try to create my own wrapping paper this year.
I bought plain white wrapping paper at the book store, and then I started playing. :)
I worked with different techniques on the different gifts.
On this one I added green acrylic paint over a mask, added some silver paint with a brayer and stamped with an empty roll of string.
On the gift on the left, I "painted" with a plastic sleeve... first I added some paint on the sleeve, than I "stamped" on the paper.
To create more structure I rolled an empty toilet roll (with rubber bands on it) in brown paint and then rolled it over the paper. Kind of messy, but fun. :)
On the package in the middle, I added golden paint over a Donna Downey mask.
Then I stamped with bubble wrap and a piece of cardboard.
On the right package I rolled the paint out with my brayer. That gives it a layer-on-layer effect.
When that was dry I stamped with the empty toilet roll and cardboard.
Do you think someone will be happy about these gifts?
