Here's a gift wrapping tutorial

Only 9 more days to Christmas!!!
I like to keep my holiday gift wraps simple and unique. Here are a couple of ways I'm wrapping my gifts this year.


For this project, you'll need:
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Gesso
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Glaze
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Gelatos® in the following colors: Red Cherry (Red set); Pistachio (Green set)
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Stamper’s Big Brush Pen: Black # 199
Others: kraft wrapping paper, paint brush, pencil


Cut wrapping paper for the gifts you want to wrap. Wrap gifts and secure with wrapping paper with tape or stitch into packets.


Draw an oval on the wrapped surface with pencil. Following the outline of the oval, draw circles in various sizes with Red Cherry Gelatos color.


Draw leaves around the red circles with Pistachio Gelato color.


Use Glaze to blend and add shin to the colored design.


Write sentiment with Stamper's Big Brush pen.

 
Splatter some diluted gesso with paint brush to mimic snow.



Add some ribbon, label, tag, or candy cane to the wrapped gift to finish.

Have fun wrapping your gifts your way this year :)
