City life!

Hi everyone! Today I'd like to share some 'bag' art that I made for my DT project featured in the March Gauche Alchemy newsletter. Yup, you read it right.....bagged art! Every week, hubby and I get a loaf of fresh Italian bread to gobble down, leaving only crumbs and a wrinkled up bag. I was about to throw the bag out, when I thought, "I really like the look of this bag.....I think I'll use it in some way for one of my projects, and this is what I came up with......

City life..... fast moving and filled with a combo of business, stylish, and fun filled people all scurrying around with a purpose!
As part of my details, I envisioned buildings, and thought the zebra striped napkin pieces, from the GA napkin-art-kit, would be perfect!
Love the boldness that these pieces add to this! To add a little sparkle and fun, I decided to add some gorgeous blue rhinestones and the number 'one' tile chip, from the blue-streak-mixed-media-color-kit. 
I thought it might be fashionable to have one of my gals courting along with some kind of 3D embellie, so I used that neat looking umbrella from the banana-hammock-mixed-media-color-kit.
Love the very cool bits and pieces in each one of the colored mixed media kits. Each bag, is a wonder in-of-itself. I invite you to check these kits'll go crazy over these  embellies/fixings!
And while you're GA shopping, be sure to take a peek at the Gauche Alchemy Blog for all kinds of
neat ideas and inspirational works of art! You're going to be astonished with what you see!
As always, thank you for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!
