Tote 10 & Tote 11

I painted Totes 10 & 11 yesterday with what I hoped to be decent colors to correspond with the selected scarves. Painted with a diluted mix (about 1/2 and 1/2) acrylic paint & water. Diluted the paint to see if this makes a different in the final texture of the finished piece. Painted inside and out. On the purple bag, painted the inside a light blue. Then, when the deep purple was painted on the outside, it bled through here and there and created a delightful speckled effect inside. Let them dry overnight.

Tote1002 Tote1102 This morning, took them outside, set up the paint box, and applied spray paint stencils to each. Used light stencils on the deep purple, which lightened it up some. Still think it's a bit dark, which I'll work to remedy with stamps.
