January always seems to be the month to get organized! For many creatives, that can mean piles of art and craft supplies that need to find a home. I thought it would be fun to do a little painting while making a canvas pouch to store some of my pencils.

That way the only cutting I needed to do was to cut it in half before I sewed it up.

I then lay the 12×12 Square Scrolls stencil on top of the wet paint and wiped off through the stencil with a paper towel.

When that layer dried, I stamped some circles with a hand carved stamp and black ink, and then added a bunch of circles with bright pink paint.

A swirl design taken from the 12×12 Impressions stencil created a pop of turquoise to the pink circles. I also drew a few loose marks with a white paint pen.

Once all the layers were dry, I cut the canvas in half to get it ready to sew together.

I love making art functional! The canvas sheets make it really handy to create these pouches and they have a ton of uses to get your supplies organized.

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project.
