Art for the love of it - watercolours are my main choice of medium, closely followed by inspiration, acrylics and oils.

Canvas repurposed.

This is something I've done before and the other day I decided it was time to repurpose another old acrylic canvas painting.   Having bought some plain canvas tote bags (the stronger sort not flimsy ones), I set to work and cut my canvas from the frame it was on

the point of no return

Tote measures approx. 17" x 15"

I cross-stitched the canvas onto the bag using strong thread.  This is the inside of the bag, so the stitching shows - I call it my shabby chic stitch!

That's it, one modern tote shopper with repurposed artwork.
