|Mixed Media Gift Wrap Using|
Unique Laser Design's Swirly Christmas Tree
|Started with a piece a kraft paper|
that was large enough to wrap
around my gift box.
Grocery bags are also GREAT!
Used washi tape to adhere
the kraft paper to my work surface.
|Used black archival ink|
to add this Stampabilities 'Faith'
stamp as a background layer.
|Selected three shades of turquoise/teal|
& pearl acrylic paint
for my Christmas tree color.
Placed a generous amount of
each color on my Gelli Plate.
Marbled gently with a paint brush.
