...make custom gift bags! obviously, lol. :) i always attach my giftbag panels with 4 or 5 small squares of foam tape, whether they are sparkly kid-based ones that feature cupcakes and the child's name spelled out in giant letters, or grown up ones like these. this means that the recipient can easily save the art without having to keep the bag for all eternity. or they can leave it intact and re-use the bag. in this case, the bags went to my mom and aunt and they held the pinecone houses and vintage paper trees from the other day. so now you know.
HAPPY NEW YEAR'S EVE,
*one of my favorite ways to use color burst pigment powders is to pre-mix them in a deep-welled palette as fairly intense shades, then use them to paint and blend exactly like regular watercolors. they are quite seriously luscious... and a bit addictive, actually! ♥
