Hi friends! Dana Tatar here today sharing a fun and colorful zipper clutch. I was born in the 1980s and I am so excited to see geometric designs and neon colors come back into fashion. My young daughters aren’t sold on this trend, but I’m happy to relive the days of my youth! I colored, stamped, and embossed a plain canvas clutch to make a rad accessory.
I used Adhesive Sheets with embossing powder to add neon accents to this clutch. Adhesives Sheets are flexible enough to adhere to a textured surface like canvas and also provide a strong bond for a no-mess application of embossing powder. The solid blocks of bright color really helped add flair to my design.
How to Transform a Canvas Clutch from Blah to Bodacious
- First, prime the canvas for maximum color absorption with a spritz of water. Next, choose a bright color of spray mist to apply to the clutch. Spread the color around the canvas with a paintbrush and blend with more water if necessary to achieve a solid base color. Dry with a heat tool.
- Stamp a geometric pattern onto the canvas in a random fashion. Be sure to use a dark color of permanent ink.
- Cut an Adhesive Sheet into quarter-inch rectangles. Then, remove the yellow backing layer and firmly press the Adhesive Sheets onto the stamped shapes.
- Finally, peel off the backing paper, apply neon embossing powder to the adhesive, and apply heat to set.
I’m ready to jet with all my essentials like my mix tape, a charm bracelet, and emergency adhesive! Thanks for stopping by today! What would you carry in this clutch? Let me know in the comments section.
