Bag It

Bag It

Hi Everyone!
Hope you're having a
good day.  I'm hoping 
for a seriously good
crafting day -  I see the
UFO's are settling back
into my Craft Room and
we can't have that..........

Helen Chilton is back with
us today and oh my, does
she have a super fabulous 
project to share using a 
Kraft bag and Kay Carley's
new PaperArtsy stamps.

"Step 1

I'm cutting out a window in one side
of the Kraft bag using a 
Sizzix Framelit (any shape) and I've put in 
the long thin plate to cut on

Step 2

If you haven't got this type of plate 
just put your die on the inside of the bag, 
cutting side downwards - a bit more fiddly, 
but it still works.

Step 3: 

Next stamp your images from Kay Carley 
sets 05, 06 and 07

Step 4

Paint them in using Frescos, going over the lines.

Step 5: 

Then add some South Pacific blue 
and give shape to the flowers in white.

Step 6: 

You can see here how the white paint gives the flower form.

Step 7: 

Paint the spikey flower in Pixie Dust going 
over the black again.

Step 8: 

Add extra colour with coloured pencils 
and then highlights and shading.

Step 9: 

Cut acetate to fit the window, mask 
and start stamping in black.

Step 10: 

Here's a close up - I've stamped the first few 
in grey and then stamped over the top 
in black to add depth.

Here's the back"

Materials used:

PaperArtsy Kay Carley 05, 06, 07
Fresco paints
Derwent Coloursoft pencils
Kraft bag

Thank you Helen for a beautiful

This would make a lovely present
filled with toiletries or a maybe a
selection of seed bags for a gardener.

What would you put in it?

'Till tomorrow

  1. The window is a great addition to the bag and makes it extra special. A gorgeous gift in itself as it's hand painted!

  2. Fabulous details on the bag x the flowers are gorgeous and the window is very clever.
    Great step by step
