canvas supply bag

I do a lot of traveling back and forth between my home and my studio and that means I am always lugging a bunch of supplies with me! Recently I found THIS canvas supply tote (this post is not sponsored) and I thought it would be perfect for transporting supplies.



The tote is heavy duty canvas and has 8 large pockets and 16 small ones and is designed to stay open when you set it down- perfect for a variety of random supplies. There was no way I could leave this tote plain so of course I used acrylic paint and added messy layers of color to it. I used a combination of Golden Fluid Acrylics, High Flow Acrylics and Blick Matte Acrylics

TIP: I've found when I am painting on heavy duty canvas, I prefer to use fluid acrylics because them seem to spread and soak into that heavy canvas better.

I gave the tote a quick layer of messy color and a few simple details and just like that it was transformed into something that felt a little more like me!

Aww I really love this! Would love to do something similar as a diaper bag for my girls that could transition into an art bag when I'm done with it. As always, thanks for the colorful inspiration!

What a great idea!!! You've given me an idea for the bags we have in Australia for shopping (https://www.google.com.au/search?q=green+bags&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwj4oqiVuO7KAhXiF6YKHU1PBEQQsAQIPg&biw=1556&bih=1020#imgrc=UUpxiog2H7y2SM%3A). I tend to use one of them for lugging my paints etc around because of the flat bottom and strong handles. I can paint some of them ... Even for my shopping trips!

LOVE this! wanted to share that you can also buy a "rigger" bag (tools) at a near by Harbor Freight store and its almost the same- much cheaper. I used a coupon too and got mine for under 10 dollars. :)

I have the Harbor Freight version, but I haven't painted it yet...
