It hit me the other day that Christmas is just over 3 months away! 😓 While I have started, I also know that I need to kick it up a notch if I hope to get everything done!
Someone on my list is a big Betty Boop fan, so I can almost paint her in my sleep lol.
This Boop gift is a reusable shopping tote. I found the canvas bag at the dollar store for $2!
I stuffed some newspaper inside of it so the paint wouldn’t bleed through.
Transferred one of my well used Boop patterns where I wanted it. I also wrote “Boop” in pencil above the image, a bit more decoration.
And then I started painting. Canvas totes have a tendency to absorb some of the paint, so you may have to go back over it after it dries.
I used one of my reusable squeeze paint bottles and that is what I used for the writing.
I used a very fine tip marker to outline Boop because I know there’s no way I’d be able to paint that fine right now.
I made glitter stars on the tote as well to add a bit of sparkle!.
Now I just have to wait for it to completely dry and then I have another Christmas present off my list!
