More painting

Sadly, all I own is the color blue right now in fabric paint. Since I seem to be painting everything in sight, I clearly need to buy a few more colors. Not everything needs to be turquoise!
This is my lap top bag. Just like the other tote I painted, it is fax leather. I used tulip fabric paint and did two layers. This bag has little groves in the leather, and it took a while for the paint to be smooth. In some places I had to go back and add a little. But the end result is awesome!
 I really need to buy more colors. I'm thinking next: gold, peach, and mint!

That little bit of blue adds so much character :) I also love the idea of gold.

P.s. I'm working on writing you back, dear! Sorry it is taking a bit.

How interesting. With my creative ideas, I would have never considered painting a faux leather bag. I love the way it turned out!!

Turquoise looks good with brown! But yeah, it might be nice to mix it up. lol

Great job! I love painting things. Mostly, I love painting old shoes. :P You definitely need more colors. More colors are always better.

That's such an easy way to update your clothes and I think peach and mint are lovely choices. (:
