Have you tote-ally been into anything???
I’ve been going through a tote phase. No, this is not where I buy totes. It is in fact where I paint them. I am #toteally loving it! (See what I did there.)
Side story: I’d bought these brand new set of gelatos. No, I’m not talking about ice-cream. It’s even better! It looks like a chap-stick, but it is actually a crayon and you can color using them. They are super cool. But more about that at a later time. I was experimenting with them on my new totes. For some reason it did NOT turn out well.
And when something does not look good, I fix it OR at least give it a college try. I couldn’t throw the tote away obviously. Duh!
So I did what all great artists do – I painted over it! Just kidding, I #toteally made that up (insert silly laugh here).
Anyways here’s the process of what I did. I used simple fabric paints and some tape as a masking tool.
This looked hideous after the black outlines so I had to fix this.
Masking it with tape and dumping colors on it was an easy solution to fix it.
I then doodled over it. It gives a cool look where you can see some of the older work show through the masking.
And now the transformation has been complete! Tadaaaaa…..
