Hello Everyone, Shilpa here,
I am super excited to share with you my first post here.
I've altered small canvas bag and for that I've used Happy The Homestead stamp
designed by Susan Weckesser
Let's see the process...
When I saw this small(7 1/2" *6") canvas bag at my local craft store, I knew it is perfect for altering with Susan's cute stamps.
I started with applying coat of white gesso. Let it dry completely.
I stamped on the surface with text and texture stamps and Jet black Archival Ink
I adhered washi tape with soft gloss gel. It was the time to bring on the colors. I used Gelatos for this.
I applied Gelatos directly on the surface, spritzed water and blended the colors with my fingers.
I stamped the Happy Homestead house image with black archival ink on design paper. Cut it out and adhered it on surface with soft gloss gel. Further I colored it with PIIT pens.
Some more stamping in the background to create flowers, birds and clouds..and my bag is ready.
I believe this will be fabulous gift for any special friend!
That's it for today, let me know if you liked my Altered Canvas Bag.
I'll see you again in two weeks ...for more mixed media projects visit my blog Neon Diary.
