Art-To-Go-Bag

This one is mine! I'm calling it my "She" Bag. I made it especially for me to carry my art-to-go stuff. It has five pockets.
It is a "SHE" bag because I like to use "she" statements with my ladies.
She kept her head up, she felt pretty.
She danced...she loved...she laughed.
She almost expected fairies to come tiptoeing.
She wouldn't do a thing but sit in her room and read and write poetry.

Inspired by a project in Traci Bautista's book Collage Unleashed. I really like how she does her hand lettered words and so I tried that. And I just can't get enough of the freestyle stitching.
She was about the game.
I did six fabric collages with my ladies who where printed on paper. I showed them in previous post. I used Clear Tar Gel for fusing. There wasn't room on the outside for all of them so I made pockets inside too. I'll be doing this again. Won't it fun to carry!
More later,
Sharon

I am in a serious art slump and I need something to light my artistic fire - I HAVE to do a bag...and you are helping...I need to keep coming here and looking and feel what it stirs in me. I almost feel like a fraud calling myself an artist these days. sorry for the whiny comment...really and truly I'm needing your inspiration!
