Happy Saturday! Spring might finally be here!We are supposed to be in the 60’s tomorrow! I needed a bag to take with me for my walks to the library, so with the great weather I felt like busting out a fun and easy project: Sponge stamping. It can’t get any easier than taking a tote bag, a bit of paint and a cut up sponge for an easy and fun craft.
When I decided to do this project, I realized the only sponge I had was the kind with a scrubby back. I would have used a cheaper plain sponge if I had one. I hope hubby likes scrubbing pots and pans with little triangles for a while.
I cut them into triangles with a sharp pair of scissors. I didn’t measure, I just kind of eyeballed how big.Feel free to draw out your cut lines in marker if it’s easier.
I loaded up my palette with some fun colors. I used regular acrylic paint instead of fabric paint. I think it will be fine with out fading too much. If you are concerned about it, you can mix your paint with textile medium to make it more permanent.
I loaded up my sponges and started stamping in a pattern across the bottom alternating paint colors.
And at each layer, I stopped little short for a more geometric design.
