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!

Stamps:
The Landing Pad, URA Hoot, Quirky Alphabet (Kim Hughes Collection) by Cornish Heritage Farms
Ink:
Coffee Bean (Brilliance)
Watermelon Adirondack Pigment Ink (Ranger)
Accessories:
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!
