I started by painting the shape of my face on the purse with a mixture of white and peach acrylic paint. It took several coats of paint to get the base color light enough. I painted an aqua background similar to the 50s girl painting.
So, that's how I created this hand painted 1950s girl retro purse! I hope it helped you in your endeavors to paint or use mixed media on a purse! Just remember to be creative and have fun!
Love, Miranda Marie
