Project Instructions

  • 1
    Project time does not include drying time for the paint.
  • 2
    Insert old piece of cardboard or sturdy paper inside tote to prevent paint soaking through.
  • 3
    Using large sponge brush, paint one side of tote Coastal Waters. (Tip: add a little water to paint to make color look smoother and cover canvas surface better.) Let dry completely.
  • 4
    Using pencil, draw Mama Owl and Baby Owl outlines.
  • 5
    Using Flamingo, add color to owls. Let dry.
  • 6
    Use Lipstick to add feathers and heart above baby owl’s head.
  • 7
    Use Turf Green for stems and leaves added to ground around birds and for flower in Mama Owl’s hand.
  • 8
    Use Lemon Zest for petals of flowers; use Eggplant for flower center in Mama Owl’s and for owl beaks.
  • 9
    To add a little dimension, glue buttons as flower centers using fabric glue.
  • 10
    Trace over outlines on owl bodies and faces with marker.

    Optional: Add message for Mom on opposite side of bag. You can be as creative with this message as you want. Use same colors as front of bag and add details such as hearts or flowers.
