Remember the art tote bag that I showed you last week? Well, I figured out how to patch the holes! I also added color to the bag! (You all know how much I like color!)
Isn’t it totally wild?! 🙂 I printed it with Golden Fluid acrylic paints on my Gelli plate yesterday. I covered the holes with circles I cut from deli-printed gelli prints:
I used a stencil to cut out the colored circles and ironed on a fusible web stabilizer to the papers. I then sewed the papers over the holes on the bag. It was a bit tricky to sew so my lines aren’t too straight. I may finish the edges with hand stitching – I haven’t decided yet.
On the other side of my bag, I sewed 3 colored circles:
I like the colors on this side best! I used stencils and Spirograph circles to make my patterns with my gelli plate.
I think my art tote bag looks so much better now. I’d love to know what you think!
Happy Creating! 🙂

After my color experiments yesterday, I decided to try the deli paper texture with acrylic paints. The results take my breath away!
Here are just a couple I did:
I like how the acrylic paints adhere to the deli paper so I can use them in my collages too!
I then remembered a couple people mention the Spirograph in my blog post last Sunday so I dug out my set – it is from 1967. It still looks in pretty good shape, wouldn’t you agree?
I decided to switch gears and give it a try once more! But I had difficulty getting the outside circle to move properly. So I did the next best thing – I covered it with paint!
I then got the idea to try printing with the circles – they look a little like gears, don’t you think?
I finished by adding more paint and texture with the deli paper.
I bet you didn’t expect me to do this, huh? I challenge you to think outside the box too!
Happy Creating! 🙂
