Hi, This is only my second post and my first with pictures, so I hope they show up!
I started with this black velvet landscape painting.

I decided to use the painting like a fabric and turned it into a tote bag.

I am very happy with the results.
I hope you like it!

truely beautiful! You did a wonderful job on it! And what a way to show off an olde cliche. Most velvet paintings are hiding in someone's attic or basement!
