I was gelli printing a bunch of envelopes and started to embellish them some more with bubble wrap dabbed in paint when I ran into some trouble. I've used this bubble wrap for a while and it had quite the accumulation of dried paint on it.

Wham-o! What if I took packing tape and pressed it across the top of the dried-paint-topped bubble wrap? That might look cool...wait...it does! Bonus: the bubble wrap is still bubbly and can be re-used. Sweet!

I painted an index card (ICAD 2016 starts today!) blue and then wrapped the dried paint packing tape over the top of it. I'm feeling like quite the recycling goddess today. I cut a hole in the card and the background in the circle is from a paper towel that was used to dry up my little preschool kiddies' spray paint projects.
Fun, fun, fun day in the studio! Now I need to get back to the gelli'd envies which I totally tossed aside when this idea hit me. ;) (And yes. This is usually what my desk looks like...yikes!)
