Q.  With whom would you love to spend a day creating, past or present

A.   I’d love to create art with Georgia O’Keeffe in New Mexico. I lived there for 7 years & I’d love a chance to see it through her eyes

Q.  Who has made the biggest impact in your life?

A.  My husband. Because I’m free to be whoever I want to be & he supports me. I’ve never had that kind of unconditional love & support before.

Q.  Are you trained or self taught?

A.  I am self taught

Q.  What is your favorite color scheme?

A.  I have two favorite color schemes Cream & Red with accents of apple green & black. And the second one is eggplant/aubergine & sage green with accents of gold & pink. I know they both sound wacky but I’ve used them quite a lot & love them.

Now that we have gotten to know her better we can enjoy this post as Creative Goddess Vicki O Dell shows us how to create this quick and easy painted canvas tote.

Creating this hand painted canvas beach tote looks fun.

If you are like me, going almost anywhere in the summer requires taking along extra stuff…an extra bag for towels, swimsuits, shoes, sunscreen, water etc. Why not make your bag fit your style or personality?



Here is a plain tote. BORING!


And here is a variety of fabric paints I had on hand.

I simply brushed on SoSoft fabric paint with foam brushes.

Then once the fabric paint dried I accented it with the Scribbles 3D.

Simple squares, spirals, dots, and squiggles over the brushed on color.




Having a one of a kind (find it in a pile of bags in the back of the car) tote bag doesn’t get any easier than this!


Thanks Vicki, for sharing your HAND PAINTED CANVAS BEACH TOTE with us!
