SDC61= alter something!

Happy Wednesday!  New challenges startin up with the new dt at the Stampotique challenge blog and new rules. :0  Check it out cuz I think you will be pleasantly suprised. Hostess : Polly Bennett is asking us to "alter it".  This was A LOT of fun!  Take note:  there was also A LOT  of canvas projects at CHA Chicago this summer.  :)
ONE of our new dt members is Sarinda Jones...awesome inspiration at her blog...She is a multi talented artist too.  She did a tutorial on her blog showing  how she painted a canvas bag for her mother in law .  I decided I would case hers for my niece who loves the Daniel Torrente images at Stampotique.
This was done with Faber castells (gelatos), modeling paste, flowers, ribbon, canvas and lace and just about anything you wish.   I made a vow that I would only use what I had lying around my "art room" with the exception of the canvas bag (1.00 from the lcs).  The flowers were actually picked up a while back when my lcs was marking them down for .50 cents a piece . :)
Stamps used:  "beauty verse" #3056, "carrot" #6092, "gobby lin" #6116, "Minky girl" #6125 and "gog lin" #6118, "bla bla bla" #6001 and "sun design" . The leaves are modeling paste pushed thru a cheap stencil I found at the lcs for .25 cents :)  She really likes it and I am already thinking of ideas for one for myself! 
I would also like to link up to "paint party Friday" TFL!

Hi Jane,
Just popped over for a visit as we are swapping tags this month. Really like this bag you have altered. Got my creative jucies flowing now as I have a canvas bag I stenciled with butterflies whilst doing a quick art shop at the NEC one yr. Never completed doing anything with it but have loads of inspiration after seeing yours! Hugs ValeryAnne (aka Mrs A. )
