Paint Party Friday!!!

Here is my first mini mixed-media painting I did a few days ago.
It's 2.5"x3.5" green painted canvas
with Ranger's Tim Holtz epherma,
on top of a mini table easel.

Cannot believe it's been 3 more weeks since I have posted.
Before that, it had been 2 months!!!
Hopefully I have gotten to a point where I am able to
blog every week, even if it is only for PPF.

Not sure what Paint Party Friday is all about?
Click HERE and make sure you say hello
to the awesomely talented Kristin & Eva!

and let the Blog hopping and visiting friends
begin for me!

Here are a couple new Rasz Bags that I have sewn and painted.

One of my favorites so far:

This bag is made from white canvas, painted with a wash of brown, added dark brown and a blue-grey in a cammo-like design. There are two dark brown painted handles and the top of the bag is trimmed off with a length of brown washed canvas, raw frayed edges painted a dark brown and finished off with a brown button.

Same design, just a little more "pretty" and finished off...

(Eek! I thought I had a better picture)
This is a pretty bag with same brown wash, inside and out.
This bag has faux leather pre-made handles.
Both Rasz Bags have painted matching pockets inside.

That's the painted items I have to share for today. 
As for my website, it WILL be up before the end of the weekend.
Please come by and visit next week at www.raszart.com
There may not be much items, however I will add as I go.
It's very scary and I think that is why it is taking me so long.
Well, being a little nervous, body not cooperating and doctor appointments.

Hope you are having a
Hugs, Rasz

I do miss you. I am so glad to see you now. I am so impressed with your small piece. I just can't seem to do small and am in awe of yours. Those bags are AWESOME. I love the colors and shape. I will be back to check your website.

Ooh, Rasz, those bags are super!!!You did a beautiful job in making them. I've never painted a tea bag. In fact I now just order loose decaf tea from Upton or Harney so I don't have any tea bags. Not sure I'd ever paint one if I did have one. It does look labor intensive, but I do see artists doing this more and more.

Your bags are amazing! Very pretty. It can be daunting to make a website and get your art out there, but you'll do fine. Every step, even a tiny little one, counts. You're on your way!

Thank you so much. I really miss all my friends at paint party Friday. I just can't stay away anymore. Thanks for the comment and I would have gotten back earlier if I knew I could now reply. See what happens when you leave for a few weeks LOL. Big hugs and thanks for the great comment you made me all warm and fuzzy.

Hey Stacy! Thank you for the great compliments. I will be better after surgery I hope! Yes I am excited to see my site up too, and it still isn't. I have to stop putting time frames on myself. Big hugs!

Hi Robin,

What a cute little canvas! Also, the bags are great! Do you sew them yourself or buy already made bags? I took a class over the weekend and we painted on a bag and I really enjoyed it.

I know what you mean about blogging. I've been bad about it too. Although I am going to join in WOYWW tomorrow!
