StencilGirl Meets Colourcraft

Here we are at Day 2 of the StencilGirl and Colourcraft Blog Hop.

I had so much fun playing with these products!

I opted for the Brusho Cool Colour Pack with  Brusho Thickener
as well as Prussian Blue, Ultramarine, Turquoise,
 Leaf Green and Sea Green.

After experimenting on paper and in journals I thought
I would try the Brusho's on canvas paper to see if I could sew something.
I started with layers and layers of the different 
Brusho blues and greens through various stencils... 
in my eagerness to try sewing it, I used art crayons for a quick final layer.

It turns out you CAN sew zippers into canvas paper!
Hmmmm...That opens up a lot of possibilities!

I made a simple bag with my first experimental canvas paper.

Then I played with a few other canvas papers and stencils and Brusho paints.
Layers and Layers and Layers of Fun!

Another Colourcraft Product I received to play with was this 

The gold paint showed up so beautifully on these canvas papers
and on top of the Brusho paint layers.

Stencils I used in these projects were:

I quickly spray painted stencils on the back sides of the canvas paper
so it would add some interest when opening these zippered bags. 

There you go! I love these finished bags.
