Christmas presents

I have been busy making 24 Christmas presents for the 12 days of Christmas swap on CC Swaps yahoo group.

I won't spoil the surprise for the recipients by posting pictures of what I made, but I was so pleased with the way they looked when I'd finished wrapping them (never my strong point LOL) that I thought I'd share that here.

For the smaller presents, I sprayed mulberry or silk papers with colourwash sprays, and for the larger flatter gifts, I crumpled brown paper up then sprayed each sheet with 3 colours of Radiant Rain. A quick handmade tag and tied it all up with soem interesting balck yarn to add drama. I hope the recipients realise that the wrapping is part of the gift, to be used in their art!


  1. Love the papers. Would never have guessed it started off as brown bags. I hope I'm in your group!!!

  2. I just found your blog while blog surfing and wanted to leave you a comment thanking you. I love that you described each background and materials you used. It makes it easier for a novice like me to learn new tricks. I love your work and plan on checking back often.

  3. Must spray paper for christmas wrappings.
    Must remember.
