Nomadic Soul Diaries Altered Paper Bag~November Challenge

Welcome to another month at Nomadic Soul Diaries This month is crazy with inspiration. All about the Rust and who doesn’t like the challenge of altering a paper bag, something you would usually end up pitching in the bin. But instead, transforming it into a beautiful piece of art with all the lovely textures and feel of the patina and rust between your finger.

I would love to share a beautiful paper bag I made to meet the challenge this month. This bag features two pockets, with tag inserts and lots and lots of texture. Here is a short video of the creative process.

I really just used the short time I had to immerse myself in the details. The fine brush details on the flowers and the rust technique on the gears., the crackle and shading of the colour palette.

The inspirational Quote “Just when the caterpillar thought her life was over she began to fly.” I love the quote and the paper from Stamperia inspired me, the winged features needed to be used on the bag.

Life is all about transforming into who we will become,  moulding and shaping into what we will be and we will learn to fly and soar.

Here are a few close-ups
