Shades of Love :: Stamped-Painted-Doodled & Lettered Gift Bag Tutorial
Shades of Love Gift Bags

Make small strokes onto brown paper bags using a small paintbrush and Sumi ink or India ink.
These are my favorites: Sumi ink by Yasutomo and Super Black India ink by Speedball.
Paint loose scribbles onto a book page with Montana Acrylic markers. Let dry.
Stamp image with dark ink onto the bookpage. I like the looseness the acrylic colors so that not the entire area that you are stamping is covered with color. This allows some of the unpainted book page to peek through.
Write text onto the painted and stamped book page.
Cut out the painted and stamped images. Adhere onto the painted bags. Add doodles with a white gel pen.
Enclose gift, fold top edge, secure with a wooden clothespin.
