Way cool challenge Toy. For me painting on a brown lunch sack is like painting on kraft cs. Love it! Plus this sack takes me back in time when my step dad would take a grocery sack and fold the top down twice to use as a trash sack. To this day I just love the look of a sack done this way. Don't know why, but I do.......my sack, which btw isn't a fancy schmancy one but very useful........
Have lots of lunch sacks since I pack DH's lunch practically everyday. Doubt he'll miss a sack. hehe
Right off I folded down the top twice. Then I stamped a Plum Purdy stamp, clear ep'ing it. Coloring was done with Bic Markers. The white part was done with white acrylic paint and shaded with milk chocolate acrylic paint. Stippled the snow on the bottom and added the snow drops with a white sigma pen drawing black circles around a few of them.
I don't think I will put a lunch in this one. Kind of like how it looks. Maybe I'll use it for craft scraps. hehe.....TFL :0)

This is one adorable brown bag!! I love your snow woman and how you have colored/painted her!! I wouldn't want to use this bag for a lunch either. But it's sure great for tossing your scraps into as a grab bag for future use!!

This looks like something that I'd happily purchase at my favorite artsy store! I do the brown bag thing, too. Another use, I cook popcorn in the microwave with it....tmi?
