Hortpark flowers on a bag

I bought a recycled carrier bag from the Hortpark office some time ago. It was simple with green outline of what I thought were bunches of flowers. It cost only $2 and I thought it would make a nice gift for friends whom I have not seen in a while. Today I decided to take a better look at the design on the front of the bag and then it dawned on me that I could actually fill in the outlines with some fabric paints. I started enthusiastically for the outlines looked like there were many flowers that I could paint on. After some time of dabbing yellow paint on what I thought were petals I realised that they were not petals but leaves. By the time I finished 2 hours later, I have managed to transform the outline into a picture of a frangipani tree. These are the flowers for today!

But not so clever when I ironed it over a piece of cloth because I applied too much heat and then holes appeared. Luckily they were tiny holes and not really noticeable unless I point them out. Learning through experience. I bought another bag from the Hortpark office and will do more painting but don't know when I will get to start.
