bubble wrap designs

you will have noticed that my last few LO's have had a painted/misted background made from bubble wrap - I thought I'd take a few pictures of the process and show you how I got that effect.



 ... after I'm happy with the amount of paint/ink/glimmer mist I have on the bubble wrap - it's time to lay your 12x12" paper over the top of the bubble wrap - press down over the page so that it soaks up the different mediums - when you lift it up, you will get a nice surprise at the patterns and textures - I just ♥ the big dot effect this bubble wrap gives.




... now I have a selection of backgrounds to work with - you can keep adding paints and mists to your bubble wrap - you will be amazed at how many background papers you can make up with this method, as well as little tags.
