bubble wrap painting
Arent I looking gorgeous this morning!!! Thanks Jumeirah :)
Umm.. what happened to Wednesday?? Did I sleep straight through it?? Who knows??
Might have been the fact that I was in some kind of strange world having three kids at home, one apparently sick but really causing too much drama to be REALLY sick... hmmmm....
Yesterdays craft was a fun and easy one, although it was easier still as its one of the ones I prepared last weekend. I get delivered boxes of The Body Shop loveliness at least once or twice a week. And in each box, aside from there being some beautiful smells, there is also a tonne of bubble wrap!
So I tried to think of a way to do bubble printing without it being a complete mess and worked out that if I kept the bubble wrap stiff, it would be easier to paint on and turn over to print..... so last sunday night, I cut cardboard up and covered it with bubble wrap :) Easy :)
Jumeirah was the only taker for this one but the other two will get a chance again on friday.
She covered one side of the bubble wrap in paint
Then flipped it over ( easy to do as it was stiff) and pressed down
Then lifted to reveal a gorgeous bubbly pattern!
She did a whole heap of these.. we both loved the patterns it made.
Good one to use to make wrapping paper. And the best part was, seeing as I sealed the cardboard in so well, I just rinsed them under water and they are good to go again!
If you dont have any bubble wrap on hand, you can buy it from Big W or the post office. We will be using it for more crafts next week.
