It’s a wrapping time of year and it was time to splash some paint around and make some paper for Christmas making. Starting with Red Rosin Paper, my four foot roll of floor underlayment paper, I used my Gelli Plate ™ as a plain monoprint surface I rolled on paint and flipped it over and slapped it down on the rosin paper. (I did about 6 feet x 4 feet at a time). I did not wait for the paint to dry, just kept adding color, leaving some of the red to show through.
I also used my roller to push some paint around as well. Got out a big spiral stamp and topped it off with some reds permanent ink.
I rather like the overall colors with the pops of cad yellow lighting up the night as it were.
Some matching twines and tiny tags I punched out of watercolor paper from my stash rounded out the play session.
Oh and of course some washing tape to further adorn the packages and tags. I did another sheet yesterday with a slightly different color variant, I like to mix it up, now to wrap all the Superhero’s gifts before he can find them. Enjoy your merry making.
