It's the most wonderful time of the year....

As per the Staples commercial here in Canada. Yes, back to school today. I love routine. We (my daughter and I) decided to dress up her new book bag with some stamps.
This was a fun easy project which made her bag personal and unique.

Here are the supplies I used, just very simple stamping and then I colored the objects in using perfect pearls and a fabric medium... too fun!

The Landing Pad, URA Hoot, Quirky Alphabet (Kim Hughes Collection) by Cornish Heritage Farms
Coffee Bean (Brilliance)
Watermelon Adirondack Pigment Ink (Ranger)
Perfect Pearls (Ranger)
Fabric Medium (Ranger)
Paint Brush
Felt Flower, Brad (Making Memories)

Happy Back to School Days!

Great idea, Sherrie and Marie! If you get a chance, post a picture of the whole bag-I'd love to see the stamping in context. Happy back to school!
