What would you stencil on THIS?

I have it in black. A very plain, basic, backpack that functions very well.
I was thinking of stenciling on some kind of swirly loopy design that sort of creeps out of one corner of the pocket... like ivy, except more of a graphic design concept... kind of?
Preferrably not bands or anything that I may tire out of; i'm not sure how long i'm going to have to use this BORING thing. =)

Thanks in advance!

I like your idea, it would look great in a darker gray so it's subtle and artistic.
edit: I definetly wouldn't put bands on it, if you plan on using it for any longer period of time. take it from me. if you want bands on it, just make a black patch and sew it on and it'll look great and it'll be removable just in case. ;]

i've never done it but i've seen other people that have so i don't see why it wouldn't work...

I had a boring plum eastpak backpack, which faded awefully because of the sun. I stencilled Andre the Giant on the front, attached buttons and embroidered the Mushroomhead logo on the side (yeah, a band logo, but it rocks anyway). I also used safety pins to attach other band patches, so I can remove them later on, and stencilled Alex (clockwork orange) and a Space Invader on the other side.

Flowers, trees and anything nature related will always look great, so I'd go either for that, or something abstract, like you said.

That's a cool idea, but just out of curiousity, how would you get the bag flat enough to put the stencil on?  Because if you can't get it flat, wouldn't you have to freehand a lot of it?  (I'm very new to stenciling so this might be a dumb question. . . )
