Birthday Gift Bag - F

Another project completed - this time a gift bag for my daughters birthday next month.  I will be filling it with girly things, just hope she likes it.  I forgot to take a pic of the before but it is one of those chipboard carrier bag so is rigid to start with.


Modelling paste with brick stencil
saxe blue paint as base then washed over with cream
wooden frame painted in taupe and wiped over with inka gold
my fave stamp - Ophelia from shakespeare, stamped clear embossed and then covered with acetate
jewelled flower from an old pair of earrings, 
leak appliques 
pearl strands
old doilies
gold crushed ribbon for handles and bow

I think thats about it lol

Enjoyed doing this and sorry for overload of pics - I could not make up my mind which ones were best ones lol

Hugz to all
