Bubble Wrap Printing

 
Journal+Bubble-745x1024 (1)Awhile back I had a chance to print with bubble wrap, and loved how it worked in my art journal class.
 
1. Cut panels of bubble wrap that is smaller than the journal pages so that the paint wouldn’t go all the way to the edges. Students are given a brush, acrylic paint and paper plate. After spreading the paint out on the plate, the bubble wrap was pressed into the paint (bubble side down) and then printed in the center of a blank journal page.
 
2. After a successful print was made, the students pressed a paper towel on top of the page to absorb any extra paint.
 
3. When the paint felt dry,  students used colored pencils to color in the bubbles. I love how they look like marbles all lined up in a row.
