Just an update as I added a few more flowers with a little more color.
Remember my plain art sketchbook bag? I decided to paint it and it is finally finished. It has taken me three days to get it all done. First I choose the colors for the background as I went along. I did use the color wheel for this but subdued the colors so the lettering would show up. I choose my favorite colors and ones that complimented each other
I drew up some ideas of what I wanted on each side. Then I started. I don't know about you but when the creative ideas start to come I have a hard time quiting. I just don't want to stop till the project is done. So I didn't get a lot of sleep in these few days. I was just having too much fun!
So below are pics of the process and sides.
All this goes in my bag.
What I learned as I did this:
As I was a little afraid to start, I asked the Lord to help me with it and he did.)
When I Painted on some of the acrlyic paint, it worked best to use a sm wet sponge to move it around on the canvas.
To water down the paint a little too.
It is my art bag, so I painted words, art, designs and colors that I liked. The things that would inspire me to want to use all my supplies that it holds.
I had to remember it is only paint and I can always change it.
This is now a pretty addition to my art room and I love to look at it and USE it! So I am a little behind in my sketch chellenge but will catch up soon.
If you do paint your own art bag please let me know. I would love to see it!! Feel free to use any of my ideas, but I am sure you will come up with some great ideas of your own!
Hope you enjoyed this post and are inspired!
Have a blessed creative day!
