Summer Bag 🏖

Happy Friday! Today we're changing it up a bit and not using paper! 😮 Yep... I said it, no paper! Hi everyone, I'm Julissa of Paper Gems by Jules and today I moved the paper aside. and pulled out this canvas pouch I found in my closet full of random things and though, let's ink it up!

Because of the size, I was originally thinking of using one of the new slimline stamps, but thought this fun hippie chic Summer Girl stamp seemed more fun for this project. I stamped her using StazOn ink. Not sure if that was the best choice because I was using alcohol inks, but I just chose to be careful when coloring.

I started with her boots, and realized I really needed to use a lighter touch to avoid the bleeding of ink as you can see here at her feet. It was minor, but luckily, I learned right away. Feather the ink if you choose to use a marker. Another alternative might be to use watered down acrylic paint? If I find another one of these, I might try that.

To add a little texture to. this colored image, I added some gold glitter Stickles and used the Nuvo Glitter pen to color in the centers of the flowers. This fun image is super bright and vibrant and really gives that summer vibe.

What's great about Unity Stamps is that you're not limited in what you stamp on. Their beautiful red rubber allows for lots of detail even on a rough surface like canvas. I hope you found some inspiration in today's project and if you create something different based on this post... tag me, please. I'd love to see what you make.

Until next time... Happy Crafting!
