Stamping on Fabric: Mixed Media Purse
Surprisingly, I heard birds singing today. It was a balmy 70 degrees outside, I noticed new blooms on my rose bush and it doesn’t seem at all like fall. The only thing I have left to do in my garden is dig up my sweet potatoes. Hopefully, I will get a better yield this year as we added some different soil. We have a lot of clay in our soil so in the past, everything other than the potato directly attached to the vine has been stunted due to the density of the clay. And due to the rain I have been putting off digging them up but I think this weekend I will have to give in and get dirty.
At least we will be gaining an extra hour of sleep this weekend. Driving my children to the bus stop in the dark is messing with my sleep cycle. I should be sleeping when it is dark. Haha.
Creating The Purse and Tag
I used PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Paints and Stamps for this project. For the Purse I used the free pattern Ruby’s Party Bag by Moda Bake Shop.
I started off by stamping my images in Archival ink onto the fabric front main for my purse.
I painted the images using the PA paints. After they dried, I finished assembling my bag using the sewing machine.
The background of my tag was stenciled using a StencilGirl Stencil and then painted and stamped. The main images were stamped, cut and layered onto the tag.
As we are nearing the holiday season, this would make the perfect gift for a little girl or someone who loves purses. I made this for my daughter but I lengthened the strap so she could wear it as a cross purse. She loves wearing this to church and it is the perfect size to carry her Gideon New Testament
