Game of Forever Love

This week, we are continuing with the Shopping focus at Gingersnap Creations, the challenge is to use "Packaging materials". Come visit and check out all the fashionable creations of my fellow Ginger Designers. You know I like to try new things in creating, even if I just try it once. LOL. Well, one of my dear artist friends told me about  a collage technique by ironing layers of plastic bags, between white paper, so it wont gunk up your iron. I tried it and made this background of plastic bag snippets from  various stores my daughter frequents...Forever 21, H&M and Love Culture  My husband looked at this and said it reminded him of a game board so I'm calling it Game of Forever Love .

I happened to have a framed box from some product and it just fit the plastic collage  perfectly. I then stamped the three heart images by Inkadinkado on transparencies and layered then over white plastic flowers. For the border there are dominoes, poker chips painted yellow with my favorite tool "sharpie markers." a turquoise flower, white flower and big fat red jeweled heart. Sprinkle with rhinestones and it was time to start playing the game of love.

Hope you will have fun and enjoying playing with a dear friend this week.
take care, gerri

    I love your intrepid nature to give things a go at least once to see if you like it. Well this certainly paid off as this was an amazing use of packaging and also a creative use as well and it created a fabulous base for your art.
    Stunning!
