less messy and easier to cut lays bags (when theyre cleaned out) are great shrinky dinks...color on them and then just pop them in the microwave...im still not confident on how long, but my boyfriend says it should only take 5-10 sec.

Like potato chip bags? What do you color on them with - it seems like they would be too slick for colored pencil to stick to it.

Great job, original poster, these are really pretty, and I agree that the black and white ones would make PERFECT earrings!
  yessum just like the potato chip bags and when me and my boyfriend tried it we used sharpies and it just sort of baked on to the bag

Awesome! Very pretty! If they come out good after you shrink them, you should totally punch holes in them and turn them into jewelry. How pretty would that be?!?! I know I'd buy 'em.

i love doodles like that, they're so pretty-ful. prisma pencils are beautiful and i wish i had the money for them, i wonder if michael's would let me use one of those 40% off coupons on a set of them...hmm...
I don't see why not.... and it's cheaper to get them in those big packs... though I still buy several individual ones like white, green, and yellow..

Prismacolor pencils are great and lay down a heavy load of pigment. After using them I got rid of all my other pencils. They are expensive though as are all good quality art supplies. I got a large set with a 50% off at xmas time. It was my employee discount. I have had them for years.
I don't know what prisma color pencils are, but I've seen two posts where they were used on shrink plastic, and I simply must find some! These are gorgeous, btw. I can't wait to see the final product! They're going to be beautiful. Smiley

The designs you did are awsome! I love rough and ready too and I totaly agree about the ripping. It sucks when you finish a piece and got to cut it out and it tears. Try leaving a little extra around the edges and cut from the outside in only and use a good sharp fine scissors.
