Styling...

I think we all love a beautiful gift, even after the holidays are over there are still birthdays, anniversaries and other fun holidays to share something unique with the ones we love.  its a passion of mine, after having part-time customer service gigs as a young adult, I still love to create a piece of artwork when I wrap a gift. Some of my favorite stylist make complete art out of simple packaging and paint.  I could do it all day.  Give me paper and paint and something to wrap and its a fun time for me.  

I wanted to share a few today, this was a fun styling project I gave myself. beautifully faded and layered gifts. 

 

I had fun painting lots of foam board for my backgrounds.  They don't always come out the way I want but when they do I really love them.  When painting backgrounds just lay on the paints and smudge around until you get the effect you want or use other materials like the ends of paint brushes, old gift cards and napkins.  You can get some of the most beautiful effects from simple things. 

Thanks for stopping in today and I hope to continue to share and add little tidbits from time to time on paper things and styling. 

Take care...
