At Gingersnap Creations we are going Shopping in June with a focus on using packaging materials in our art! Join us in our tribute to retail therapy!
Along with our new theme, we are welcoming a brand-new sponsor to Gingersnap Creations - Altered Pages! They have some fabulous prizes in store for you this month!
This week it's the Spicy Supply Challenge --Packaging Materials. Please visit Gingersnap Creations for all the details on entering this challenge. You'll also see there the other design team Gingers' art created for this challenge.
For my design team creation, I used a variety of packaging materials. Last week, I took out the cardboard insert from a package of new sheets. I cut it down to tag size and ripped off the top layer, then added some Adirondack Snow Cap acrylic paint. I'm not fond of those staples that snag your clothes if not removed carefully. So I thought it would be appropriate to use lots of staples on this tag. I found a little plastic bag with the "extra button and thread" usually attached to clothing. I created my own sentiment and some "fabric care symbols" to insert into the bag. The tag trim at the top is a piece of shopping bag handle that I unraveled. More staples.
I used one of the images provided by Jean Moore from Altered Pages. This bathing beauty is on the 1941 Fashion Ladies sheet. Never one to enjoy looking into the dressing room mirror, I came up with the sentiment, "I didn't know GUARANTEED TO BE LIGHT-WEIGHT AND WRINKLE FREE was referring to the suit!" Yup, it's that time of year again. I printed the image onto beige paper, wrinkled it and distressed with Ranger Antique Linen, hoping it looked like I ripped the ad out of the newspaper to take along on a shopping trip. I also distressed the Tim Holtz ticket WISH, epitomizing my bathing suit fantasy look.
What will you create with packaging materials? You just may be the next Home Page Artist or one of ten Ginger Gems! You have until July 10 to upload your creation to GC106.
