perfect for Spring – hand painted canvas bags in my Etsy shop!

do you ever shop at Blitsy? it’s an online marketplace with awesome deals on art and craft supplies. you need to be a member to shop Blitsy, but it’s free to join. then you receive daily sales emails – but you need to be quick, because the items are available for a limited time only (unless they sell out first, which happens often!)

a while back, i ordered some canvas tote bags and burlap pillowcases from Blitsy. last month i FINALLY got around to painting a couple of the bags (pillowcases to come later!) –

using my fabric markers (Tsukineko Fabrico Dual Markers – also purchased from Blitsy!), i drew some big whimsical flowers. painting came next! it was my first time using Jacquard Textile Colors and i loved the result – the colors are really rich and saturated…
