Paint Embellished Candice and a Giveaway

Lazies, I’m home from Quilt Market in Houston! I had a great time, saw tons of friends, got a little work done and had event-less travel. What more could a Lazy Girl ask for? While in Houston, I had a chance to see this incredible painted Candice in person, made by my dear friend Shelly Stokes of Cedar Canyon Textiles. Shelly and I are teaming up to offer a fantastic giveaway at her blog. Details and a link below.

Candice purse, LGD130

Shelly worked her always-inspiring-magic with Paintstiks and rubbing plates to embellish a hand-dyed fabric for her Candice. The hand-dyed fabric ranged in color from the lime green accent corner behind the front slant pocket to the blues and maroons you see under the painted swirls.

Shelly used her new ‘Doodles’ rubbing plates and iridescent Paintstiks to create this vibrant design full of visual movement and depth. And look at that zipper pull in the picture above – it’s perfect!

The back is awesome. Those Doodle plates are dandy! And the rectangular rings look wonderful, picking up the light tones of the iridescent paints.

    These really are beautiful. Can’t wait to try Doodles and Paintstiks on a Candace, and maybe on a Miranda.
    Thanks for the inspiration!

    Joan, the purse is fabulous! I don’t know how to use the paintstiks but would sure like t learn. I have made two more Wonder Wallets for my daughter for Christmas. Thanks for all your wonderful ideas.

    Love the new Candace bag….thanks for showing the Margo with the paintsticks. I made one Margo so far and have been in search for the perfect fabric to make another……Now I think I need to get the new doodle rubbing plates and make my fabric so I can make another.

    I was in Houston at Festival hoping to buy the pattern but could not find it anywhere. I was very disappointed. I love Lazy patterns.
