I'm sharing a tutorial of my project for today...
Though I didn't use my Chameleon markers for this project, I wanted you to see what a great tote this is for carrying your markers or other crafty items with you. Here's what I DID use:
Stampendous Vintage Note • Dreamweaver Stylized Dahlia Stencil and Die • Dreamweaver Crusade Background • Dreamweaver Waves and Dots stencil • Dreamweaver Matte Black Embossing Paste • Onyx VersaFine and Purple Radiant Neon Re-inker from Tsukineko® • Fast Finish Decoupagé and Zip Dry from Beacon Adhesives® • Canvas Corp® Small Canvas Tote • Hemptique Variegated Cord • black pom pom trim • black pom poms • muslin and scrap patterned fabrics • buttons from Buttons Galore & More • palette knife • paintbrush
|Step 1: Tape stencil to surface. Spread paste smoothly over design. Remove stencil to clean. Set tote aside to dry. (Note: Insert something firm in pocket before pasting and stenciling.)|
|Step 2: Mix a few drops of re-inker with a small amount of Fast Finish. Coat muslin scrap, and let dry.|
|Step 3: Stamp Vintage Note with Onyx Versafine. Apply heat tool to set ink.|
|Step 4: Coat scrap of patterned fabric with Fast Finish. Let dry. (Coating with FF makes it easy to die cut later.)|
|Step 5: Die cut flower from the purple fabric, and leaves from patterned fabric.|
|Step 6: Brush Fast Finish over pasted sections. Place die cut pieces, and brush over surface to seal. Let dry.|
|Step 7: Mix small amount of FF with re-inker, and daub with paintbrush over background and back of tote.|
|Step 8: Place die over the top of design to mask while daubing paint. Let dry.|
|Step 9: Place die over design again. Place Crusade stencil over top.|
|Step 10: Ink stencil with large stencil brush and Onyx ink. Use heat tool to set ink. Repeat on back of tote with background stencil only.|
|Step 11: Adhere extra scraps on front with Fast Finish. Adhere small pom poms with Zip Dry.|
|Step 12: Adhere pom pom trim and strip of patterned fabric to tote with Zip Dry and Fast Finish respectively.|
|Step 13: Tie cord through buttons as desired. Add drop of FF to hold bows. Adhere buttons with Zip Dry.|
|Step 14: Stamp Vintage Letter with Onyx ink along one side of strap. Heat set ink.|
|Step 15: Mix a bit of FF and re-inker again, and daub through Waves and Dots stencil along other side of strap. Let dry, and adhere more buttons.|
