My oldest Grandson is getting married in early August and my youngest daughter is hosting a shower for his future bride in July. She has been watching my blog and asked me if I would decorate some gift bags with a plum blossom sumi-e.

Gift Bag 1

I just finished three gift bags as a trial run. I did not use true sumi-e because I am afraid that the gift bags will not absorb the ink or watercolor like they should. For these I used markers – sharpies and others.

Gift Bag 3

For these bags I used snippets of the design on the napkins, paper plates and hand towels I found. They are cherry blossom rather than plum but I don’t think this will matter. From here on out I am freehanding it and I may also try some done in black and gray like an ink painting. Hope she likes them.
