My First Attempt

My first attempt at a canvas tote bag or purse came a few months ago. Yes, I'm a little behind in sharing!  This tote is made by Prima, and was part of their new release in January.  Here's what I did with it:
I started by stamping the circles with gesso, then misting over them with "Meadow" Glimmer Mist.  I taped off the yellow areas to contain the mist.  Then I reversed the taping and misted the grey and yellow areas.  Then I outlined the circles with my PITT Pen from Faber-Castell.  A few more canvas embellishements and some lace finished it off.

Next time I do one, I'll do a few things differently, but overall I think it turned out pretty cute!  Prima canvas is so thick and wonderful to work with!  I think this may become a birthday gift for my daughter... she's been eyeing it for a while now, ever since modeling it for me for this photo!

Thanks for coming by!
