I purchased this burlap pencil case a while back from the craft store. I needed a pouch to take with me when I'm out and about.
I used color pencils, watercolor crayons, and acrylic paint for the background.
As I started to paint I noticed that the fabric absorbs quite a bit of paint so please keep this in mind when painting on burlap. The vibrancy of the paint will also be dulled a bit once dry so I pulled out my neon colors and stenciled away.
I wanted my focus to be abstract silhouette's so I used my charcoal pencil to loosely draw four figures.
The background was too busy so I added purple to make the silhouettes stand out. I also added blue highlights to the figures to make them more cohesive.
The other side was treated the same way although I didn't know how it was going to turn out.
I really liked the stencil letters but it was too plain.
So I drew in one silhouette and filled the background with color and more stenciling.
I added two additional figures and blue to the background.
