Do you feel like a paper bag......

Hi Lovely Ladies!

Here is my example page for my song/Lyric Challenge over at Soul Scrappers. This month we are using the Song 'Firework' by Katy Perry. You must use a word....OR a couple of words...OR a sentence OR even the song title on your page. This is a free scrap so any theme goes :)

Do you feel like a paper bag..... 

I felt like doing a real arty piece, so here I have drawn and painted (look alike) plastic bags on to baking paper. Using Jo Sonja's artist acrylics. I basecoated the bags with smoked pearl, I side loaded my brush into Paynes Grey and painted the creases and shading. I then sideloaded with warm white on my brush loaded with Smoked pearl and blended over the highlighted areas. I then used a pen to outline the bags and then I cut them out. The paint has pulled away in some spots making the plastic bags look old and shabby. Exactly the technique I was looking for :)

Here is a close up!

Here is the prize you will be playing for :)

A selection of Chevron bags (not plastic bags!!) lol
These are great for adding hidden journaling on your layouts!
