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!

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