Have You Seen Bubble Wrap Dandelions?

Dear friends,
In search of random items to play in my journal, I was nicely surprised to find bubble wraps hidden deep in my craft closet. What a benign neglect on my part!. I used to pop bubble wraps with my cats when they were young kittens, so much fun. And soon enough, they ended up as dandelions on my journal. LOL.


I started by sticking masking tapes randomly over the pages to create some sort of patchwork. Colored over it with blue soft pastel and smudged with wet finger. After that dried, I decoupaged some decorative tissue papers. Later adhered brown twines, gauze and bubble wrap (as dandelions). Smudged gesso on bubble wraps. Lastly, drew circles & dots around each circles and wrote 'Carry my dreams, dandelions' in black india ink.


Bubble wrap as dandelions. Gauze as clouds. And decoupaged rose garden!. Happiness.

Another fun use of bubble wraps. This month at LESSology, we are also playing with bubble wraps!. Take a peek at fabulous ideas using bubble wrap and come play along with our Challenge #16: Bubble Boy or Girl!.

I'm also linking up my journal pages today to Art Journal Cafe (Tissue Paper Challenge)Have a good Monday, everyone!. 

Hugs,
Shahrul

  5. Ohhh sweet mother of all that's crafty...you've used my favorite pasttime on your card. Bubble wrap! What a youthful addiction I have to them. Not once did I ever think while pummeling them with my feet how cool they'd look on a project. Dyn-O-mite project!! Looks fantastic and rich and full of texture. :)

    1. One cool fact; one pops (bubble wrap) and and the other puffs (dandelions). Hence, they're portrayed as one in my journal :).
