Hi everyone! So, I recently finished my latest stenciled project. Stenciling i am addicted to ugh! Anyway, my favorite band is The Beatles and I am completely obsessed with Octopi! So, lucky for me my two favorite things can be combined! So here it is!

I started with a plain black canvas bag I got from wal mart in the craft department. I picked out some paints and picked out some pictures I wanted for my bag. I printed out my pictures and traced them out on freezer paper. Did all that junk you needed to do then I painted it white since acrylic paint seeps through since its mostly clear. I wanted to go over it but I decided to just hand paint it the way I wanted it! So everything is hand painted with all the details put in it how I thought it should be. The peace sign flowers I couldnt find any stencil for so I put them on there myself and also the bubbles which took forever! Anyway! I love my bag so much! I came out great. Here are some pictures Smiley

One side: " I'd like to be under the sea in an octopus' garden with you..."

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.
