Jan did this tote bag by following directions in the article "Converted Canvas Tote" by Gail Ellspermann that was originally published in Haute Handbags Vol. I. She had a lot of fun using the chalk pastels and then building up her collage. It of course is in her typical color scheme.....lol!!
So in doing this canvas I used the same chalk pastels but sprayed it with a fixable. I really like how this one turned out since the chalks didn't run. A customer really wanted to walk out with it as soon as I finished it but had to convince her that it couldn't go anywhere quite yet. Now I guess I better go and get a little bit of work done before we close in an hour.
