How about some wrapping and Art Journaling for today with our Italian inspirational Gio. Lovely idea to make your own wrapping paper. Always better than Thomas the Tank engine when you realise you have run out of wrapping paper for the last minute present...
Let's see how Gio mastered that one...
I cut out some simple shapes from a piece of acetate, a circle and a diamond.
I start to stamp a sheet of newsprint using the stencil and a IO Cover a card -swirls and flourishes, using different mediums.
I even cut out from a sheet of acetate an high heel shoe and I stamped the newsprint with TH Distress ink . I outlined the shoes with the help of the stencil, with a black permanent pen.
This is the template I used:
You can use these newsprint to wrap gifts, make background for scrapbooking pages, cards or AJ.
I used mine to wrap some presents
and to make an AJ page:
I covered the page with Claudine Hellmuth Multi medium Matte , I glued a piece of newsprint paying attention to create some wrinkles, to add texture to the background.
I even highlighted the wrinkles with TH Distress ink Worn Lipstick.
I cut out a shoe from another piece of stamped newsprint and I traced out the silhouette with Claudine Hellmuth gesso. I glued it to the page.
I stamped and cut out the sentiment with the Crafty Secrets Alphabet stamp and TH Distress Ink.
