Kärlek: That's great! :-) So, which mediums did you use and what made you choose them?
CD: Since this design was more of a vintage vibe I only used fabric paint with a little acrylic paint for color. I used black sharpie markers and gold leaf markers. To give it the shimmer I used fabric paint and gold sequence with a little red fine glitter too.
Kärlek: What did you enjoy most about using a Kärlek backpack as your canvas?
CD: I've never used gold leaf markers on fabric and this was a pleasant surprise. Even the sharpie marker did well on the material. It was such a smooth surface to draw on.
Kärlek: Do you have any tips or thoughts to share about your experience?
CD: If you love shimmer, gold, and glam like I do, I suggest using a good quality adhesive to hold embellishments on. I've seen a couple of mine fall off with just using fabric glue. I'd use heavy-duty glue for my single sequence pieces. When placing loose embellishments be sure to place on areas free of moving zippers and you'll be fine.
