Daily Window Bags

The nice folks at Daily Window have added a post to their blog about a bag I designed for them.

This project was fun and they've asked me to design more bags for their inspiration gallery and I'm looking forward to the working on them.

One of my next ideas is to display an icon or Christian image. I bought some iridescent gold pigment in Italy and I've been looking for a good excuse to use it. From Daily Window: "The bags were originally designed so that women/men could carry their inspiration, meditation, affirmation with them while on the go…as a learning/memorization tool, as a ministry. So we love when the craft world combines the artwork with the inspiration".

The bags are sturdy and good quality and they make an excellent canvas. I made a 'regular' TM collage and added some fabric pieces to go with the collage. I dyed a vintage doily and created a flower to crown the composition. I tried to make it tasteful - something I would actually carry rather than just an art project. I hope you like what I've done with my first one. I enjoyed revisting one of my favorite themes - the mermaid - and what's better than a Paperwhimsy gal for the main figure!

I love that bag, but I warn you, you start with these, you won't be able to stop!
Also, I wanted to thank you for the recent comments on my blog. For some reason I haven't been getting the emails when people post, very frustrating!
Keep up the awesome work.
