1. Start with a pre-primed canvas of any size. The size pictured is 5 by 7 inches. Paint base colors and allow to dry at least an hour.

2. Glue small rosebuds and other small silk flowers to the canvas in the shape of a purse. You can draw the shape in first and then fill in to make sure you get the shape right. Use a hot-glue gun for faster drying.

4. Add a rhinestone button for the purse snap.
