'What's in my Travel Art Bag!'

by Mary Lou 'LuLu' Haynes

Howdy and Welcome,

Glad you could stop by. Being knee deep in preparations for the August 2015 mixed media retreat that I'm hosting, does not leave much time for posting - or anything else!

But I wanted to share with you what's in my new art bag! My hubby gave me a 'Voyager Riggers Bag' (from earlier this month. I posted one photo on Facebook and got requests for the dimensions and to show what is in it.


Also, I enjoy surfing and watching other 'what's in my bag' videos.


Here's what I loaded into this travel art bag, which has (62) wet supplies for creating art journal backgrounds.

Since I took the photos, I also lightly spray painted the bag.
