Hi! Welcome to my stop on the Cocoa Daisy Day of Inspiration Blog Hop! You should have come from Ashley Calder's magical blog. If you’re starting here, be sure to go to the Cocoa Daisy blog and check out the rest of the team’s bags! We also have some fun scrapping and chatting going on today as well as a super fun BINGO game on Sunday 2pm EST. Please stop by and say hello.
I had so much fun making this bag. I will say though, that it took several layers of paint and color to get it right. In fact, at one point I hated it and wanted to give up. I tell you this as a reminder to not give up on a project if you don't like it at first. Sometimes if you keep going, you will really like it.
I used acrylic paints for the background and some Maya Mist sprays which I heat set to make them permanent. I then copied the Audrey Hepburn image onto t shirt transfer paper and ironed it onto some very sheer material I had. I cut out the image and used gel medium to adhere it to my bag. The words, BE FABULOUS I stamped with my Cocoa Daisy Alpha onto white tissue paper with Archiver's ink and used the gel medium to adhere to bag. The gel medium makes the tissue paper disappear. This is a technique I learned from Claudine Hellmuth at CHA this winter.
I have a fun give away for this blog hop. Lots of goodies! There is also a bundle of pretty papers for you to enjoy. Please leave a comment here on my blog and LIKE our Cocoa Daisy page on FB if you haven't already. I will pick a random winner on Monday May 6th at 8am EST. I will announce the winner on May 7th (my birthday!!)
Next stop is Emily Pitts. Have fun!
