We will be going to the memorial for my DS on Sat. I had a box full
of cards, my sis Jeanne was a great artist, she would decorate her house
at Christmas, even her ceiling:):), she drew freehand on her windows and
her china cupboard with Christmas scenes, she also did folk art on tin cans
trays, I have a few she did. Anyway, I decorated 15 paper bags with
walnut ink I made and sprayed them with paint and water, crumpled the bags.
When they were dry I used bronze metallic paint with a feather and swiped
all the peaks. I ironed them all too, I'm gonna give them to my family, in honour of her.
Thanks for looking and have a great day..

Those bags are very special and full of artistry but then the idea behind their creation turns them into meaningful art.
