I gave the bag a good coat of Gesso to add white and also create a good base for the other inks and paints.
If it's a 'non-crafty' substrate you never know how the products will react so a coat of Gesso, (available in white, black or clear) is always a good plan!
Color Wash and Dylusions inks. I used my various circular paper punches to create my own stencil so if you don't have any bought ones ... just get die-cutting, snipping and punching and create your own! After drying I added areas of Punchinella, flipping it to also get a reverse print and followed with some water to create drips and dribbles...
To create texture, add white contrast and break up the solid lines I added random swooshes of gesso and dried well.
Then my fave bit - getting all messy and funky with the red flowers. I used my Red Pepper Dabber and the mini-mum stencil. Nothing to do with your mamma...
There's sooooo much you can do with this theme - take a look at what the Design Team came up with! I'm looking forward to seeing your creations and colours and wonder who will win the fab $50 spree this week?!
Thanks for calling by and have a great week!
Taraa for now...
