This gift bag started off to be a quick decorated bag for a gift I wanted to send to my daughter. As always, one idea led to another and I ended up with a mixed media gift bag!
The finished bag:
First a layer of gesso
Then some stamping with Finnabair stamps and Memento Luxe:Rhubarb Stalk
Pasted scraps of old book paper down and then added more texture using Enmarc Crafts Arty Stencils
First I used Dewdrops:Tea Leaves and then pink and chocolate texture paste
Next I sprayed the doily with Dazzles:Eggshell and pasted a section of the sprayed doily down and added more white texture paste
Whilst the texture paste was drying, I painted a green silk flower with white gesso and when it was dry, I sprayed it with Dazzles:Mystic Olive & Avocado. Then some Finnabair stamping when the flower was dry.
I also sprayed a couple of paper flowers with Dazzles
The Deco Frame:Doodle Square was inked with green and then chocolate texture paste added randomly. The the fun part was decorating the paper bag :-) I also used Finnabair art ingredients for the decoration.
