Living an ART filled life...“Creativity is a God-given ability to take something ordinary and make it into something special. It is an openness to doing old things new ways…The creative spirit is part of our heritage as children of the One who created all things. And nurturing our creativity is part of our responsibility as stewards of God’s good gifts.” - Emilie Barnes, The Spirit of Loveline

So, I made another zippered bag…I need a lot of practice:)

With this one, I used my Gelli Plate to paint the fabric, once I had my outside pieces cut out.  (Muslin) I added a textile medium to the acrylic paints, and then heat seat them when dry.

The textile medium assures a soft finish, rather than a hard dried paint that can crack.  It is also washable.  I practiced on some scrap pieces of muslin first, trying to decide on the color and basic tools for the design.

The colors and prints are limitless with the Gelli Plate….

If you’d like to see the tutorial I used for this bag you can find it here!

The zipper was a little tricky for me, as a beginner, but I learned a little something each time.

Thanks Anna!!
