Thursday


I really wanted to do something fun for my Daughter for school. . .

I used shiny white acrylic paint for the Inspired by Nature flower image, and black acrylic paint for the letters. The alphabet used was Schoolbook Serif. I really like how it turned out.

It was, however, my second attempt :)

The first one I used a different alpha, and I did NOT like it. . .I also tried using stazon and filling in with a sharpie (this worked last year, but the alpha was really thin) and it ended up bleeding sharpie ink. Not cool. So I pitched it and bought a new one.

The good part is they are only $5 at Walmart! Bonus :)

There was a little rubber tab on the backpack, and I put a flower brad on it. Just punched a hole with the crop-a-dile. What did I do before I had that tool??? I love that thing :)


Pretty in pink grograin and filigree brads were used as the zipper pulls. Regan Luuuuuvs that part :) I have to say, I really like how it turned out.


I just pulled both ends of the ribbon thru and knotted it.

As far as I know, Walmart only has pink backpacks. . . .in case you were wondering. My Upline went looking today and couldn't find a $5 black one. Bummer!

what a lucky daughter you have...I want one, too!!! It is beautiful. Does the paint clean off the the stamps very well? I struggle w/ craft ink so I wondered about the paint.
