We are getting closer to Christmas. Today, I am showing four different mixed media kraft bags on Hobbykunst's blog. Bags like these can be used as advent calendar bags, neighbour gifts, or just a different kind of Christmas gift wrap. All the bags started of as simple kraft bags.
The motives are from Pion - Glistening Season and from simple small Christmas cards.
The bag has been sprayed with Kaisermist. Det circle diecut is made with Rayher sin Spring Wreath dies. the snowflakes are made with Martha Stewart punch.
The triangle is a pendant from Rayher - white paper cord with pendant. The motive is from a small Christmas card. At the end, I have used some acrylic white paint and created the white snow effect.
Mixed Media bag
First, I collected a lot of different things, like old buttons, wooden figures and an metal ring from a soda can. These things were painted with blank gesso.
All the "trash" was glued onto the bag with liquitex heavy gel medium. Everything was drybrushed with blue acrylic paint. A few "bling" were added at the end. The motive is from Pion - Glistening Season
The background was created, using a diecut (made with Sizzlits Frameworks Border dies) as a stencil Then the bag was sprayed with Kaisermist. A cheesecloth was coloured with ink and glued under the motive. The motive is from a small Christmas card. The triangles are from Rayher - white paper cord with pendant. In the end, I added white acrylic paint as a snow effect.
Play in the snow bag
The bag has been sprayed with blue Kaisermist. I have also used a background stamp from Kaisercraft to create the black effect. I have also added some spray of white acrylic paint to create the snow effect.
The motive is from Pion - Glistening Season. The patterned paper in the background is from the same Pion series, Glistening Season - By the River. .
More ideas for decorating kraft bags, will be posted in a few days time.
