Sometimes, I want to create a masculine wrapping of a present. These bags have been decorated in a mixed media style, without a hint of Christmas. The base for the bags are simple kraft bag and are bloged for Hobbykunst
"Every possibility" bag
The background has been made with my own stencil and distress ink.
The golden glitter chevrongs has been cut from glitter cardstock. I used Rayher's Spring Wreath dies on glitter cardstock to create the cicle in the background. The measuringtape is washi tape. The text stamp is from Tim Holtz.
Bag with metal tape.
The background has been made by covering a piece of Bazzill with metal tape. Then the paper was embossed with a Tim Holtz embossing folder. Then, the embossed tape was covered with black acrylic paint. Most of the paint was removed with a cloth while the paint was still wet. The edges has been distressed to get a "rust effect" with Vintage photo - embossing powder.
The metal tag is from Tim Holtz, Observations Metal Word Bands. The rose is a Hobbykunst's Mathia rose.
"Keep calm and craft on" bag.
The background has been made with my own stencil and black distress ink. I have added washi tape in gold and added splashes with black acrylic paint.
The mixed media motive has been made, by decorating a small piece of bazzill. The Bazzill has been dry embossed. Then I glued old pieces of lace, metal, small light bulbs, diecuts and beads. Everything is painted black, and has been dry brushed with different acrylic colours.
the work "explore" is a dies from Tim Holtz, dies out in craft foam and metal paper. The metal card has been glued over the craft foam.
