Have any of you handpainted on the outside of handbags? The reason I ask is because I have recently become inspired to do some of my abstract paintings on the outside of handbags...once when I was at an arts festival I saw that an artist was doing this and the bags were just beautiful. And the person purchasing would also get an original piece of your artwork. If anyone has done this i would love to see what you'e come up with.

I've done a bunch of painting on bags, and I found the easiest to obtain/do are the 'formal bags'.  Like the small clutch-shaped and other small sizes in satins. I say this, b/c after X-mas dance and Prom season last year, various department stores really mark them down and they were about $2 each, which is pretty comparable to the price at goodwill.  I've also done larger cloth bags that I've reclaimed from Goodwill, just using what ever acrylics I have lying around. 
I've stayed away from vinyl/leather just cause you can't just use acrylics on them but have put stencils on the with spray paint and sold a bunch and carry this one around:
