Playing with packaging...

Spackling + Packaging (cut to 12x12) = a layout!
I started by turning the packaging over and tearing away to see some of the corrugated board underneath.
Then I used an offset spatula as "textured paint."

Once it was dry, I began building my page...



Everything except the swirled jewels (Prima) was used with the February WIP Project kit. I even managed to use some of the Prima packaging (green scalloped tab). I've noticed a lot of companies using packaging that can double as product (Making Memories and Jillibean are among my fav.)

Have a great weekend!

Loving the contrast of the distressed background and torn Prima paper against the "fancy" black swirls = a wonderful result :)

It is a nice and exclusive idea of packaging and recycling. It is simply good and beautiful. The corrugated box is looking even more enhanced and lovely.
