Today I am sharing a Christmas Mixed media panel using the Saved by Grace stamp set. I love creating these panels for different seasons. They are a place to play and create and just experiment while creating something beautiful.
It’s weekend and we have some awesome inspiration for you for the festive season.
There’s nothing better than receiving a beautiful gift. But wrap it in some special paper and you have a winner.
Today we show you how easy it is to make your own gift wrapping paper using POP Paint.
The best part is that each person receiving a gift from you wrapped in your own paper, is that you essentially give a part of yourself too.
the time you lovingly spent creating each unique piece of paper, and then wrapping a thoughtful gift in it – it truly is special.
As the base for my wrapping paper I used plain brown kraft paper – available in huge rolls and the perfect neutral backdrop.
step 1 – select the colour of PoP Paint you want to use. Signal and Sprout is perfect for the festive season.
step 2 – Use a soft medium sized flat paintbrush and paint random streaks onto the paper alternating the colours.
Leave the paint t dry, while working on other sheets. This way you can mass produce a few sheets at a time.
step 3 – Once the paint is dry, use a black marker to draw onto the background – a great way to get the kids involved. They can make their own personal wrapping paper for family and friends with a little help from an adult. Or use your stamps and stamp with black ink onto the background randomly overlapping the paint streaks like I did.
Now you are ready to wrap all those special gifts for your loved ones. Add a simple bit of twine or ribbon and a few extra bits of decorations and you will have some special gifts to place under the tree this year.
The fun doesn’t stop there – you can make your own special gift tags to match your paper using the same paint colours.
So what are you waiting for – get creative and make your own recyclable paper this year.
With Christmas just around the corner, you still have enough time to create your own beautiful papers. So get cracking.
