Fresh Spring Face for Tote Bag

I was browsing through the magazine Haute Handbags and got inspired to spruce up a canvas tote I got at Lee Valley. I think they were only $5.00. All I did was mask off a square with wide masking tape and put down 2 layers of Gesso playing with textures as I went. Next I started in with acrylics and just had fun. Then I peeled up the tape and added the stamps. Easy!

Here is a close up below.
