I cut out some triangles from masking tape & made a little triangle design on the bag. Make sure you adhere the tape securely....meaning push down the edges so the paint doesn't seep through.
When applying the paint, try to go in one direction. It would pick up the paint from where I'd placed it before if I tried to outline the triangles individually. So I ended up doing two coats where I covered up nearly all of the tape to keep the coats even. The acetone in the paint was harder to work with, but I liked the process better (I think!)
I added a textured bit of yellow by painting it on then dabbing my paper towel in the wet paint. For the fringe, I dipped it in the teal then wiped it off. I ran my fingers through the fringe to make sure it all dried separately.
Now it's a perfect summer bag! I can't wait for Zach to get back so I can have some outfit photos with this bag!
