This week I decided to try my hand at hand colouring a linen bag. I notice that most people tend to paint them for the colour, but I thought i'd try it with my Promarkers and I was pleased with the results. I wasn't sure how much detail or shading i could manage, as of course Linen is very absorbent, despite that i still think the fab Molly from Visible Image came out really well and that I managed to show more detail than i expected. What do you think?
2. As this then soaks into the linen and looks quite faded, I then went around all the black lines with Letrasets beautiful fine Liners, they are so lovely to use. This gave everything a nice dark crisp line.
3. I then coloured all of my images in, I had to colour in a slightly different way, as of course the ability to blend is lost on material that is so absorbent. (Don't forget to put some sheets of paper inside the bag to stop any bleed going through to the back of the bag).
4. I embroidered words in a matching red onto my bag - The words look a bit odd in the photos but I think its because the material is tighter in this area, so it has created an optical illusion of looking funny when photographed.
So remember we all know they can be used on paper and card stock and we all tend to use them to match our ribbons, pearls, flowers etc to our work, but don't be afraid to try them on material bags because you think they will not merge well, as I think they look great on material :)
