I have recently gotten in the new Tim Holtz Distress Paints and wanted to try them on fabric. I grabbed one of my handy canvas bags that I use for gifts and my Dreamweaver Stencils. I had fun and this is easy to do! The dabbers work well on the stencils. A big hint: DAB, don't RUB! You'll shred the foam dabber top on the paint. Also, don't forget to shake the paint bottle before you use it.
Dreamweaver Stencils: LJ916 Butterfly, LJ901 Mosaic Swirls, LG942 Branch
Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Paints
Shake the paint well before using.
Position the butterfly stencil on the bag and hold it in place as you dab the paint through the stencil.
Once you are done with the butterfly, move on to the background.
I used a lighter color for the background.
Move the stencil around to fill in the background around the butterfly.
With the branch stencil and three different greens, fill in the branch stencil.
Move the stencil around to put branches along the top of the bag.
Once the paint is dry, iron the bag.

Have fun and make art today.
