Fun Fabric Painting with Rita Barakat and Plaid!

Hello everyone! Have you tryed Fabric Creations™ fabric paint from Plaid®? They are great!
I found these adorable little canvas bags in my craft stash and tryed them out using some of the amazing Rita Barakat Designs stamps!
These paints come in 24 beautiful colors to choose from. I used the following for this project:
Black
Nude
African Violet
Fruit Punch
Navy
Aqua
Stamps used:
Harlequin Stencil



I stamped the Reflections stamp onto the bag using black archival ink before painting and then used a stencil and sponge technique around her.

For the cloud I applied the fabric paint directly to the stamp and stamped onto the bag.

This was a super fun way to decorate these bags. Now I can put treats in them and add them to packages!
Be sure to join Rita on Mondays live on Facebook 8pm CST!

Rita Barakat Designs and Tonic Studios

Hi There! If you have arrived here from Rita Barakat's blog your on your way to a super fun hop!!
For my project I would like to share with you this fun art journal page!!


 I love just sitting down with my art journal and some products and letting my imagination take over. It is so relaxing! This page started with a background created using Rita's Zen Doodle Cloud Stamp from Art Foamies. 
After stamping I used watercolor pencils by Tonic to finish the background.
I added the sweet face using Rita's "So You Say You Can't Draw" Stencil and then watercolored her as well.

We are kicking off with a blog hop and Mixed Media Monday tonight at 8pm CST!

I have created a fun card using the Princess Mermaid and Seagrass stamps!




The mermaid image was stamped onto watercolor cardstock using black archival ink. It was coated with clear embossing powder and heat set. This is a technique I use for water coloring stamped images. Caran D'ache watercolor pencils were then used to color the image. The seagrass stamped images were stamped in green and clear embossed before adhering them using foam dots. The large bubble was cut using a 2" circle punch, distressed and adhered using foam dots. Finally the mermaid image was added!

Isn't she just adorable? I love the whimsy of this fun stamp!
