Bleach Pen Art from "Edie"

 I wanted a larger image of the Eiffel Tower for a 
project and decided I was going to try something 
different... Hmmm... I wonder how well you 
can draw with a bleach pen? 

(bleach pen about $5 - already had Eiffel rubber stamp 
for basic image $0 )

 It took some practicing on scraps of denim.
(my first attempt looked more like an oil derrick!) 

Shake your pen very well. 
Have light pressure when squeezing tube. 
Practice Practice Practice!

I waited about 15 minutes then rinsed well, 
used a little soap on it, rinsed some more...

 and Voila! 
A great Eiffel tower image for my handbag project!

This is one of my Treasured Memories Handbags 
made for a very special lady's going away party.

The Bonjour Handbag. 

Every bag I make is unique. I can use clothing 
you've saved from a loved one to make a bag 
that uses that fabric. Hopefully I will be selling 
some handbags on Etsy soon.

(front pocket holds a water bottle 
and sunglasses)

This dear friend is a scrapbooker so the 
scissors is a perfect "charm" for one 
of her loves in life. 

(back of bag has 3 pockets - the jean pocket 
is perfect to slip a cell phone into) 

I use various fabrics and always include 
a large inside pocket with a slot for a pen.

The possibilities are endless for bleach pen art!  
I just know you want to try it!!

Hope you enjoyed this project idea from 

Til next time...
