Growing In Unity :: Day 3 - Stamped Canvas Gardening Bag (& Gift Tag)


Welcome to the 3rd day of my week as the Growing In Unity gal!

I am so thankful for each of you that have stopped by so far to check out and comment on each of my projects using Unity Stamp Company stamps. Be sure to comment on all five of my Growing In Unity posts this week if you want a chance to win some free stamps!

If you are new here or aren't already a follower: I'd love to have you follow my blog!
If you are one of my regular readers: Thanks for coming back! I love having you!
If you are on Facebook, please "like" Ink Blots by TRD.


Today I am taking a break from sharing paper-crafted projects using Unity stamps to share this canvas gardening bag with you.

I started with a blank canvas riggers bag, taped off the area I wanted to keep clean, and then started spraying with a variety of mists:
After the misted area was completely dry, I stamped the bag with the flowers from the Hello Birdie and Pray Continually stamp kits:
I then added in some stamped dots (from Hello Birdie) and the word "grow" using the Liz Hicks Alpha kit.
In addition to the bag, I wanted to create a simple, coordinating gift tag to go along with it:
It was fun working on canvas and I hope my sister-in-law (who received the bag and tag) will enjoy using her new gardening bag.


Thanks for stopping by today - and don't forget to leave a comment so you can enter to win!
