Hand decorated gift wrap
I started with a piece of white heavy weight paper, used the items on the left - a piece of plastic canvas, some mesh, a swirly tile and a piece of white wax crayon - to created some texture on my paper. I simply place my item under the paper and rubbed my crayon (laying on its side) over the paper. Just moved things around and kept rubbing until I had covered the majority of the surface area.
So next I applied some colour washes in yellow and red until all the surface was covered and I liked the play between the two colours. It left it to dry and used my left over acrylic paint to play on several other pieces of paper which will become decorative paper I will use in a another project. Nothing goes to waste!!
Very happy with this and I am off to wrap my gift!!
