Gourd Purse




I figured it was high time I made a gourd purse. I was about to cut a canteen gourd in two when my boyfriend handed me one he had not only cut in two, but he'd cleaned it inside and out and painted the interior. That left a perfect surface for decoupage. I used some designer paper that was a deep green flecked with gold strands. I applied it with a foam brush. I need to let it dry over night before I can work on the exterior. Here are some photos. Do visit my gourd blog if you want to know more as I go along.
