DIY: Painted Clutch

Happy New Year folks!  I am so happy about this project.  Every Christmas holiday I like to find a craft to do with my mother-in-law when she visits for 2 weeks.  I was determined to get this one done.  A few months back my mom sent me a few of her old clutch purses from her DIVA days in the 1970's and 80's.  See her a few pics from those days in my June 2011 blog posting here: Tribute to my Mother! I started re-do's of two of them (one gray and one black), but this one (the black one) far outweighs the other.  I still have some more work to do in the creative department for the gray clutch.  When I am done I will post about it.  As far the black one goes, I was able to capture the process below.  I must give credit to my inspiration for the idea. It came from a blog called Handbag Heaven I stumbled upon.
