Japanese Peonies Stencil Tote Bag!


Japanese Peonies Stencil Tote Bag!
 I was sent a GORGEOUS stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils!
Japanese Peonies Allover Stencil!
I am just dying to have a wall to cover with this gorgeous
Asian inspired pattern, like this vanity!

But if you are renting a house, like me...there are many other great ways to use a stencil!
Like this adorable color-blocked tote bag!

 Just a plain bag...that anyone could buy

 And some pinks, oranges and green paint.
As well as some fabric medium.
This mixes with the paint and makes it dry soft on fabric!
Cutting Edge Stencils also sent me a variety pack of stencil brushes!
(A must with stencil painting)

I mixed pink and orange with some paint medium to make coral.
Dab your brush in the paint and then blot it on a pallet or wax paper.
 Just gently hold the stencil in place while lightly dabbing the brush.

The stencil slipped a little while painting, but it still looks fabulous! 

 I added some bright pink to the tips of the petals for some variation and depth.

 Then I used some green for a few leaf fronds.

 Let it dry!
(and clean the stencil off while the paint is mostly wet...trust me on this!)
Now you have a custom tote that is sure to catch some attention!

Have you stenciled on fabric before?
