I have just seen some beautiful snowdrops on one of my early morning walks.  This is a subject that I have just used to decorate some gift bags for the gallery.

As I am decorating ready made bags, there is not a firm surface to do free painting.  To help get round this problem, I put in a foam block.  For the above bags, I drew the stems, leaves and outlines with felt tips onto white tissue and stuck them on with matt medium.  I then stamped white paint on with a small shaped piece of foam to form textured petals, and then finished off with some more outlines and extra leaves.  The luggage label gift tags were treated in exactly the same way to match.
