Stamped Canvas Heart & Treat Bag

Hello Friends!

I am here today bringing you a fun Stamped Canvas Heart, with a bonus gift bag! Both of these are super easy and very fast. The canvas hearts would be so cute hanging around the house in different sizes. You could hang it around a bottle of wine, how cute!

Supplies Needed:

You have all your supplies, let's start!

Step 1.

Using a piece of copy paper, print a heart out or draw your own.  Cut out inside of heart. This will be your stencil pattern.

Step 2.

Place stencil over fabric and stamp the open area using Flourish Wonder Stamp. 

Step 3.

Pin to hold and stitch around heart.

Step 4.

When you come close to the end, add a bit of stuffing. Don't over stuff. Finish stitching and tie off.

Step 5.

Trim off extra fabric leaving about 1/4" all the way around heart. Add flower and hanger. 

Bonus Treat Bags

Use a smaller heart stencil and stamp onto bag. Use a red marker to make stitch marks around heart.
Fill with candy or gift of choice!

Super cute, fun and fast!!!!

I hope you give one or the other a try!

My December Challenge with Brea Reese Products - Part One

It was a busy December!

Brea Reese was having a challenge and I had picked up some of there products and had never opened them. What better time to open each and every product that I had from them and USE them!!!
I had watercolor glitter inks, watercolor inks. watercolor duel tip markets and even some fine line markers. Heck yeah, I can do this!

What was I thinking when I decided to do a 31 day challenge in DECEMBER?

Who does that?

I tried in October and FAILED and that is my favorite month!!!!

I decided I could do this and I did! During this journey I fell in LOVE with these products! The more I used them the more I loved them. I am looking forward to using them often in many different works of art.

I want to share the journey with you! Some were hard and challenged me. I wish I had more time to spend on each of the drawings, but it is December! 

One a day! 

Just like a vitamin! LOL!
