My Frida Bag
R has been bugging me to paint the back of her Frida bag. She wanted it to say Frida's motto (Viva La Vida). So since I had to get the fabric paints out again, I decided to paint my Frida bag too.
These larger and sturdier canvas bags are some that a dear friends got for me a few years ago. I've been wanting to paint on them to make a set of cool grocery totes. So I thought I'd try a Frida on them first. I enlarged the image I used for the party bags and got to stenciling. However, the material is very nice on these bags but it has a slight ridge and that made my paint blur on the edges of the stencil. So I will have to re-think some of the designs I wanted to paint on the other bags....or try some other tricks. I still think she turned out okay, but a bit blurry.
And here's the pretty colors that R picked.
We are so going to be the coolest chicks carting our books around the library!
Wife to a VERY understanding man (even if he does roll his eyes and duck back into his garage way too much); mother to three maniacs,crafter, professional volunteer, crazed maniac in her own right...yep, that about covers it for now.
It's about crafts, family, gardening, life....really whatever the heck I want to talk about. I am wordy, messy, opinionated, disorganized, lacking in focus, manic, craft obsessed...and pretty much this all spills out on the pages of this blog. You've been warned!
