Cosmic Continued!

Hullo! (Does anyone else find it really difficult to word the start of a blog post? I've just been sat at my computer writing things like 'Hello, How are you?' but being a blog and not a human conversation a question isn't really the right lexical choice.) Anyway, after that minor tangent I will arrive at the point of this blog post soon I promise.

Basically, after my previous post where I created / DIYed a t shirt based on the lovely Your Eyes Lie cosmic designs, I decided to branch out and create a bag in a similar style!

In true customisation style, here is a picture of before and after:

I took my inspiration for this design from another cosmic print t shirt design on the Your Eyes Lie website:

Man I love this t shirt so much! This top can be bought from YEL for 32 British pounds.So in order to create a bag in a similar style, here is my mini tutorial!:

You might also need a plate and some newspaper!

Pretty darn simple really! Once it's dry you'll be ready to hit the streetz with you new and really cheap but ultra cool bag! And you definitely don't have to be Van Gogh to create it, you can spray and paint in any which way you like and I can guarantee you it will look awesomez.
