Merry, Merry, Homemade Giftwrap

I made this simple yet fun packaging to wrap some gifts for my friend Cynthia.
What I used: brown paper lunch bags, white acrylic paint (I have fallen in love with a brand called Cryl from Germany), permanent black ink pen, washi tape, blank tags.

I am sure you can figure out by looking at the pictures below how I created them. You should try it, so much fun! I love, love, love the black and white on the brown bag. Also, the washi tape and the tags are a fun touch and I liked figuring out a design for the tag to match the bag.

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!

p.s. the embrace imperfection stamp I used on the snowman came from Teesha Moore - she is a sweetheart and sent it along with a few others when I ordered her zines. Love her and her art!

Gift Tags and Paintings

I was playing with the Gelli Arts gel printing plate which is really cool! I did a bunch of tags and decided they would be cute to use as gift tags. Here is the first one I made and used on a gift to give away. I think it came out pretty cute!


Here is a painting that is nearly finished. The only thing left to do is put the quote I made in her hair. It is going to say "Believing in yourself is your greatest source of power". 

And last, here is a Jellypus I made for my Grandson's room. He wants a fun, aquatic motif. I thought this fantasy creation was perfect for a five year old. lol

I love the way they turned out!  See you next time. :-)
