gift bag - quick photo tutorial

I am so excited to post my first photo tutorial.  I upcycled this solid blue gift bag.

 First I painted the bag with foam , dabbing to get some texture. Then added the chord to make twines.


then using a hard tooth brush, added some paint splatters in black , white and pink to give some more  dimensions.  Further added some more pink swirls using my pastels.    
                                                   Then added flowers, butterflies and leaves , punched lace , a thank you tag to finish the bag.

Challenge --

I have used die cut flowers .

Hope you like my first attempt to photo tutorial.Thanks for taking your time out.
