Wrapping it up
Don't you just love this concept. The first time I stumbled across it was on Pinterest and I immediately fell in love.
Anything that involves some kind of 'DIY' printed pattern is right up my street and I knew in an instant that I had to give it a go.
Clare is the face behind The Painted House and 'oh my' the designs and ideas are just absolutely fabulous. I could of bought them all....but I didn't.
With Christmas coming I had only one thought in mind - wrapping paper! And with the 'stag and deer' as one of the range I knew it would be perfect. Clare had told me that it would print onto paper like a dream and a flash. She wasn't wrong either...sooooo addictive.
I did buy the whole kit, but the idea was instead of using paint I wanted to use ink on my roller - so I opted to leave the applicator off with this first attempt.
First a green pad, but the colour was too faded so I tried gold - with it being Christmas and all - and that worked fabulously. And just for the hell of it - black! Though don't do what I did and try and roller back on yourself - unless you're a pro that is...it all goes a bit pre 3D.
So what do you think? A fabulous idea with gorgeous effects.
I absolutely love it.
