  1. Mix the paint with the fabric medium. Mix two parts paint with one part fabric medium.  I use measuring spoons to make sure I get the correct ratio.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Place the flamingo stencil on the pencil pouch. Use a stencil brush to dab the white paint over the head and neck of the bird.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Add pink paint to the stencil brush without cleaning the white paint off.  Continue dabbing paint over the stencil to fill in the flamingo shape. This will create a gradient effect, with the color becoming darker as you move down the stencil. Remove the stencil.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Use a fine tip brush to touch up the stenciled image and add more color as needed. 
    Step 3 Example
  5. Place the umbrella stencil over the flamingo. Dab yellow paint that has been mixed with the fabric medium over the stencil.  Remove the stencil and let the paint dry.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Place the flower stencil on the pouch and use various bright colors to create the flower shower.
