Sometimes the thing you think you'll hate is the thing you end up loving. Since I and most quilters have many tote bags I wasn't excited about zentangleing a tote bag. But I decided to make myself an interesting food shopping tote that I might actually remember to take in the store.
I first took a white canvas tote and water sprayed it followed by misting green and yellow fabric paints. I used a plain damp foam brush to 'move the some of the splotched drops around'. This took a few hours to fully dry
finally I enjoy the quilted apple.
