steps

  1. Mask off the bottom third of the duffel bag with stencil tape. Mix fabric medium with Love Bird paint following manufacturer's instructions on the bottle, and using a brush, paint the bottom half of the bag until solidly coated. Once dry, remove tape and release.

  2. Next, mix fabric medium with Wild Salmon, Marmalade, and Love Bird paints. Using stencil tape, affix your blossom stencil from the Birds and Blossoms Medium Mylar Stencil Set to your surface. Using a stencil brush, pounce in an up-and-down motion until your design is completely covered. Remove your stencil while still wet and repeat in alternating colors until you are finished with your design.

  3. As a final touch, take a small brush and go back in and add dots of Scallion paint onto the center of some of the flowers.
