Recycle and re-use

I have always wanted to take a leather bag and paint it.  And today I did just that.  I found this bag at the flea market for $3.  I was so thrilled, it's a Gap bag too...............!  Today I finally did.  I splattered the paint in layers , letting each layer dry.  Then I used some of my bird stencils to draw the outline of the birds and branches and painted those with black paint.  And here it is!!

How cool is that? You may have started something. Next thing we know Louis Vitton will be selling painted bags for $$$$
