New purse!

I painted a new purse. I do this from time to time as they wear out. Sometimes I plan ahead, but sometimes I just take some paint and figure it out as I go along. That’s what I did this time, and I ended up with a Tim Burtonesque tree branch from which sparkly orange fruit dangles. It’s good, I like it. It’ll work fine for the next eight months (usually how long it takes me to run a purse into the ground).

    What type of markers/paint pens do you use? I have a gas mask bag I’ve been meaning to decorate (for a few years) but I was going to use sharpies and wasn’t sure that they would show/last….

    I use sakura gel pens and regular ole Tulip fabric paint. If necessary, Sharpies come into it as well. Nothing fancy or complicated. On this bag I sewed a few sequins on for extra pizazz.
