Paola here with a very cute Easter canvas bag featuring Some Odd Girls April's new release clear stamp set, "Bunny Girl Gwen"! I love mix media and I love it when Kristy’s stamps inspire me to push myself to create something using everything in my studio.
First I had to make my Easter bag from canvas material. Before I even began to paint I had to lay down a layer of gesso to prepare the canvas, and then off I went with my acrylic paints and tackled the background. I used my gel pens to doodle and my Copics to color in Bunny Girl Gwen. I modge-podged Gwen to give her a shine and make her hold up as the kids run around looking for eggs. Then I adhered her to the bag with interface just to give her a bit more dimension than the other elements.
The heart on the handle is also part of the Bunny Girl Gwen stamp set. I attached it with a very tiny brad to the handle. The sentiment "You're a bunny girl!" on the clouds is one of three that comes with Bunny Girl Gwen.
