Today we have our last Crew Member Lynne Forsythe sharing her Stenciled Zipper Bag as part of the #SGPCCBmatchup. Don’t run away because the month long matchup goes until the end of April! Have you shared one of the posts and included the hashtag #SGPCCBmatchup? Who knows, you could be our next Matchup Winner??

Howdy Canvas Corp Brands and StencilGirl Products Fans!!! I am so excited to share my projects with you. As you know the theme of our matchup has been SURFACES and how our brands work SO WELL together. I received my DT package right before I was getting ready to venture out on a road trip. So, I grabbed the Canvas Corp ~  Canvas Zipper Bag, filled it with 7gypsies goodies and off we went. (I like documenting our road trips!!) When I returned home I couldn’t WAIT to Dress Up my bag for my next trip!

Stenciled Zippered tote in the Making

First thing I did, was to cut a piece of cardboard and put it inside the Zipper Bag. Next, I pulled out a few of my StencilGirl Products stencils: Brick Factory, Heart Grid stencil and Corrugated Lines Stencil Small. I went to my wall of color and chose four Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam: Camel, Tail Fin, Just Peachy and Roses R Red. The reason I chose to use Glimmer Glam is it’s easier to control and reacts the least to water when dry.

Applying color to my surface

I set the Zipper bag aside to dry and pulled out a Canvas Corp ~ Canvas Shape Rectangle and the StencilGirl Products: Trivet a Stencil. Once again, I applied the Glimmer Glam with a stencil brush.

Applying color to my faux pocket

I pulled out a piece of Canvas Corp ~ Canvas Garland and gave it a good spritz with water. Then I applied Tail Fin ~ Glimmer Glam to the edges and let it bleed into the fabric. I repeated this process on my faux pocket using Just Peachy ~ Glimmer Glam and around the edges of my Zipper Bag using Camel ~ Glimmer Glam.

Coloring Canvas Garland

When everything was dry I put my Zippered Bag together.I tore a piece of Canvas Corp Ticking for an accent along with two vintage buttons. I decided a Ivory Burlap Flower with another vintage button would look PERFECT on the front of my bag.

    Great project! Thanks for the tutorial. I have a pencil case started- might have to dig it out and finish it! Thanks for the inspiration.

    Love the shabby chic look of the bag.
    This tote would be fun to use to carry papers
    to the Library Board meeting each month.
    That big flower is fantastic.
    thanks for sharing. #SGPCCBMatchup
