Hello and happy Friday! It's Jennifer here to share a project I created with one of the new Mascils! If you are lucky enough to visit the beach or the pool this summer how fun would it be to have your own personalized DIY bag? I used the 12 Inch Flamingos Mascil to stencil on a canvas bag and I'm going to show you my technique!
I hand washed my bag in cold water and let air dry. I then ironed out any wrinkles so my canvas would lie flat. Using painter's tape, I affixed my Mascil to the front of the canvas.
Using a foam brush and fabric paint, I lightly applied both black and pink to the appropriate areas of the flamingos. As a rule, its best to paint dark to light so I painted the legs/bill first. I allowed ample drying time between colors.
Using my Silhouette machine, I cut a template for the wings of each flamingo. With a journaling pen, I traced around the shape on the backside of some cute pink gingham fabric I found. I cut each piece out with scissors and affixed using my hot glue gun.
From my stash, I also affixed small black buttons for the eyes again using my hot glue gun. I love how it gives my bag a little dimension!
