cosmetic bag project

laughed a lot while working on this with my mom. following a pattern I found on the net, which was obviously European, with lots of foreign terminology. I love spending the time with her on projects like these. I want to make more and perfect them! I have lots of ideas! love those..

yay for more bags!

The Kanji symbol Fuki, which means fortune and well being, is an image of a stone jar filled with food or wine. When Plenty of wine and food is stored we feel comfort and have confidence in the future.

This bag was finished in one day. A few mistakes, but I am very happy with it. Happy Birthday Tobie!

Green Man Bag

This is my second bag! and this time I bought the canvas bag at the craft store, sewed in the lining, and the pockets, and the handle. painted the outside with Acrylic paint.. the HLB designs thing on the back was a last minute decision, I may or may not stick with it. I might not even be doing this in a week. but I hope I do! again, if you want one.. I'm selling them now! :)

Tree of Life

poor old tree
mankind is so mean to thee
we cut your flowers, we burn your limbs
but beautiful you will always be.

buddha bag

I bought this bag at Good Will for 2 dollars. It was just a blank canvas bag,
so i decided to paint on it, and here it is! the yellow background is done in screen printing ink,
and the buddha is done in acrylic. If i ever decide to paint a border or ad to it, ill post a picture of it. I really enjoyed doing this and I may want to do it again sometime. If you would like a bag painted, comment to this post or email me, (email is in my complete profile) and we can work something out!

tree of life wall switch

my newest obsession is polymer clay. (aka sculpey clay ) It's something i've played around with since i was a kid, and I have just figured out how much you can really do with it! It's a cheaper way to work with clay while i dont have a wheel or any ceramics equipment at my reach for the moment.
this design was inspired by Gustav klimt
