* My Traveling Art Binder ...

Do you remember a while back when I purchased a binder/bag to carry a little art material, so I could work in a coffee shop, park, plane ... etc.?  I was happy with the configuration,  not happy with the look.  Here's a photo.



I spent a little time playing with my lumier fabric paints.  Now it looks like this.


I find it so much more appealing.  I even managed to get rid of the horrible logo, by making it into the centre of a flower.  I drew the design on with a black thick nibbed sharpie.  It was a risk, because I didn't know if it was water proof, or how it would react to paint.   I was pleased it didn't run, so I can use them again for fabric painting.

“I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically, in whom feelings are much stronger as reason. I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go. Reality doesn't impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.”  Anais Nin

This looks so much better now! How lovely to have a unique bag that no one else has. The fabric colours have worked very well. Hope you are feeling well today. How's your weather? Here it's cold and grey again, like autumn! Hugs, Valerie
