It's Broni here and I'm using my turn as hostess here on the eP blog to show you my entry in Toni's Altered Bag ePicks challenge.
Here's what my altered bag looks like:
Now I'll walk you through the steps I followed to get there, with a few photos along the way.
2- painted on watered down Gesso
3- airbrushed the whole front lightly with Copic BG53
4- airbrushed using Copic BG57 and the TCW Well Rounded stencil
5- applied Studio 490 Metallic Gold embossing paste with the same stencil
This embossing paste is so beautiful. The stencils turned out looking like jewels!
6- attached flowers and beads using Ranger Glossy Accents
7- reapplied some Gesso in order to have a better base to add my sentiment
8- applied Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink using a large sponge dauber and the Rays stencil
9- applied Distress Black Soot ink with the Tiny Circles stencil
10- stamped sentiment (from Technique Junkies) in Archival Jet Black ink; used a fine tip Sharpie to smooth out some of the lines
11- laid a scrap die cut over the sentiment and airbrushed again using the Copic BG53
12 - traced around the die cut using the Sharpie; drew another line around to form a frame
13- misted with some gold spray ink
14- added some washi tape here and there (may need to adhere it better with some of my Glossy Accents)
Oops! I almost forgot to show you the back....airbrushed with my Copic BG57 and my Studio 490 Barcodes stencil.
So there you have it! I think this would make a great bag to carry craft supplies in. Or maybe some wine. Or maybe both!!
I hope you'll play along in the challenge with us! You could win a prize and most likely have loads of fun along the way!
Thanks so much for stopping in today! Until next time....Happy crafting!
